West Sacramento Family Resource Center

West Sacramento, CA 95691
The Yolo County Children Alliance’s West Sacramento Family Resource Center (WSFRC) is a safe, inviting, and trusted place for families of different cultures to get the help they need. Many immigrant families come to us, often with significant language or cultural barriers, requesting help with application assistance, document translation, and referrals to partner agencies for help with domestic violence, housing, food insecurity, mental health, or financial literacy challenges. YCCA’s Family Resource Center provides valuable information and referrals about services in many languages and aim to remain culturally responsive to the needs of the individual family that individuals can take advantage of to help achieve them self-sufficiency. At the basis of our success is a bilingual and bicultural staff that enables us to provide a culturally competent and responsive setting for our Spanish-speaking clients.
