Family Support/Child Safety


Programs that receive funding in this priority area work to strengthen families, empower parents, reduce stress, and prevent child abuse and neglect. Programs and services in this priority include:


Step by Step/Paso a Paso Healthy Families America: Evidence-based home visitation program for expectant parents and families with children 0-5 implemented by Yolo County Children’s Alliance. Services free to qualified families. New clients welcome.


Yolo Crisis Nursery: Day and night, 365 days a year, the Crisis Nursery provides safe, temporary care for children up through age 5. They accomplish their goals primarily through their three signature programs: Crisis Overnight and Respite Care, Wrap-Around Services for Parents, and Specialized Infant Day Care and Preschool. The nursery helps parents manage emergencies, keep up with their jobs, learn a new job, get medical care, or just get a break. Their services are voluntary and free.


ABC Home Visiting:  ABC is an evidence-based parenting intervention home visiting program for caregivers of infants and toddlers who have experienced early adversity. It enhances children’s behavioral and regulatory capabilities and fosters the development of secure attachments between children and their caregivers. In Yolo County, the ABC intervention is available for infants between 6 and 24 months of age, and for toddlers between 24 and 48 months, referred by Child Welfare Services.
