May 2017

“Yolo Community Care Continuum has been awarded a grant for $6,240 by the Immediate Need Grants Program of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation,” Debbie Woodsford said today.

According to Woodsford, the grant will be used replace a portion of the decaying roof at our Farmhouse facility which was damaged during this year’s winter storms. The Farmhouse is the first dwelling donated to YCCC back in the 1980’s. It is located on a ten-acre parcel of land seven miles northwest of Davis. The site includes a five-bedroom farmhouse, two large barns, two pastures and a large garden.

“Our agency serves over 700 clients each year,” Woodsford said. “The grant from Sacramento Region Community Foundation will give us additional resources to provide a safe and stable environment for the clients living at the Farmhouse.”

Yolo Community Care Continuum was founded in 1979 and has served tens of thousands of people throughout Yolo, Placer and Yuba Counties by providing client-driven services which assist people to attain their highest level of mental health possible. Leal Abbott, LCSW, is the President of the Board of Directors for YCCC.

The Sacramento Region Community Foundation is an advocate for quality of life, dedicated to connecting people who care with charitable causes. An effective steward of the region’s charitable assets since 1983, the Foundation’s mission is to transform our community through focused leadership and advocacy that inspire partnerships and expand giving.
