 Davis, CA – On Wednesday, June 28, Yolo County Children’s Alliance will be honored as a Nonprofit of the Year at a celebration of California Nonprofits Day at the State Capitol in Sacramento.

Yolo County Children’s Alliance has been selected by Senator Richard Pan as an exceptional nonprofit organization in 6th district community. Yolo County Children’s Alliance will join nearly one hundred other nonprofit leaders from across the state being honored at the annual California Nonprofits Day event, formally recognized by Assembly Concurrent Resolution 54, authored by the chair of the new Assembly Select Committee on the Nonprofit Sector Assemblywoman Monique Limon (D-Santa Barbara).

Yolo County Children’s Alliance is a non-profit child and family agency serving all of Yolo County. Our mission is to strengthen and support child abuse prevention services and coordinate resources that improve the lives of children and families. Yolo County Children’s Alliance supports families to protect and empower children. The Children’s Alliance helps families, particularly non-English speaking families, access services, learn valuable parenting skills,
and find support.

“It is a great honor to be nominated by Senator Pan at this level,” says Yolo County Children’s Alliance Executive Director, Katie Villegas. “To be recognized for the work we do every day to help kids and parents in Yolo County gives us renewed focus and determination to ensure all Yolo County children have the chance to grow and thrive.”

The award recipients will be honored at a luncheon at Sacramento’s Convention Center, with welcomes from Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, Assemblymember Limon, and Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has also been invited to speak to the gathered honorees and their legislators.

“Nonprofit organizations are vitally important to the economy and well-being of California. But too often nonprofits are ‘hidden in plain sight.’ We are thrilled that the State Assembly has passed a resolution for the second year in a row that puts the spotlight on nonprofits as an economic power that uses that power for the common good. We congratulate all of the award recipients on being honored for the great work they do every day to make California a better place,” said Jan Masaoka, CEO of California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits), a statewide alliance of over 10,000 organizations, representing and promoting California’s growing nonprofit sector and working to bring the full power of nonprofits to strengthening communities.
