First 5 Yolo

Enhanced Integrated Family Support Initiative

In June 2012, the Commission once again updated its strategic plan, based on a new Community Needs Assessment (CNA). The CNA was conducted in response to the restoration of AB99 funds- approximately $2.5 million was returned to First 5 Yolo in March 2012. The CNA clearly indicated a need to provide stronger family support services including:

  • Resource and Referral- helping families access services for which they are eligible

  • Financial Literacy- helping families maximize and manage their financial resources
  • Early Childhood Education- providing parents with interactive parent/child workshops to increase skills and confidence in ability to be child's first teacher
  • Parent Education - providing parents with education on a wide variety of parenting skills and nutrition education
  • Quality Food- increasing access to fresh produce in communities throughout the
  • Developmental Screenings- providing developmental/mental health assessments to children 0-5 and ensuring referral and access to appropriate levels of treatment

Expanded Family Resource Center

Based on the identified needs, the Commission developed the Expanded Family Resource Center Model as a strategy to impact children throughout the county. As of July 1, 2012, eight Family Resource Centers (FRC) or FRC hubs will be created or bolstered to ensure the above services are provided. A total of $800,000 per year is allocated to the Expanded FRC Initiative, which will continue from FY12/13-FY14/15. Specific outcomes of the Initiative include:

  • Increased number of families are connected to the services they need and for which they are eligible
  • Increased number of families have the training and skills necessary to manage their finances and the opportunity (through EITC) to maximize their income
  • Increased number of parents have the knowledge, skills and opportunities to engage in activities that support their child's social, emotional, physical and cognitive development
  • Increased number children who eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day
  • Increased number of children screened for developmental issues and accessing appropriate levels of treatment
