Services by Appointment

Clients can call or visit the Yolo Family Resource Center’s main office or satellite locations during business hours to make an appointment for access to the following programs, which are staffed primarily by our case managers. Assistance without an appointment may not always be available. All of the services provided through the programs below are free of charge to clients.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program: We offer free tax help to low- to moderate-income individuals who cannot afford professional assistance in filing tax returns. YFRC staff and trained volunteers prepare the tax returns. Appointments are available from February 1 to April 15 a first-come, first-served basis. This year, in partnership with the office of Assemblymember Mariko Yamada, the YFRC will participate in a “Super Saturday” tax clinic where we hope to prepare 100 returns! Last year, the YFRC filed over 250 returns worth over $300,000 in refunds. For the latest information on VITA, please call or e-mail our VITA Site Coordinator, Josie Enriquez.

Homeless Prevention and Rapid Rehousing Program (HPRP): Download the brochure here. HPRP was specifically designed to serve as the framework for prevention efforts to address homelessness in Yolo County. The countywide effort operates under the leadership of the Yolo Family Resource Center and includes partnerships with the Yolo Wayfarer Center, Legal Assistance of Northern California, Davis Community Meals, RISE, and the Broderick Christian Center. The intent of the program is to provide a prevention and intervention strategy to assist families and individuals who are at risk of becoming homeless or have lost their housing. The Yolo HPRP has been specifically designed to reach people in need of assistance who are not necessarily connected to the traditional homeless system of care. The Yolo FRC has developed a prevention and intervention strategy, which works directly with clients to overcome barriers, increase engagement, access services, and track outcomes. In order to develop the broad outreach necessary to reach this population, an integrated system of service access points have been developed in the following communities: Woodland, West Sacramento, Davis, Winters, Esparto, and Knights Landing. For more information about HPRP, please call or e-mail Josie Enriquez.

Health Insurance Project: Multilingual ssistance is available at the YFRC and various locations in the community. The Health Insurance Project assists any Yolo County family in obtaining access to needed health insurance, including Healthy Families, Healthy Kids, Kaiser and Medi-Cal. Clients receive assistance in completing forms, filing applications, follow-up and utilization. Specialists will travel as necessary to accommodate large-scale enrollment opportunities.
