Yolo County’s Cache Creek Casino / Yocha Dehe Tribe Headed by UC Davis Foundation Director — Chairman Marshall McKay — Supports Yolo County Foster Children

Community Fund Supports Yolo Foster Kids

The Woodland Community College’s Foster & Kinship Care Education Foundation received a $48,500 donation from the Yocha Dehe Community Fund to serve Yolo County youth in foster care.

Kris Stanfill, YDCF Director stated, “The Committee is excited to be a part of supporting Yolo County Foster Care and the efforts to recruit and retain local families for local children.”

Historically, young people have had heartbreaking outcomes when exiting the foster care system; including high rates of homelessness, incarceration, early and unplanned pregnancies and unemployment, according to Stanfill.

“Tragically most foster youth suffer academically, have poor self-sufficiency, and few successful endings,” Stanfill stated.

With this support, the WCC Foster and Kinship Care Education program, “will enhance efforts to build a stronger network of local families willing to open their hearts to youth in need of safe and stable homes.”

“Ultimately, we hope to build a broader, more diverse pool of caregivers so that children placed into out-of-home care can continue to live in local families that are ready and able to meet their needs in homes that allow them to maintain their friends, schools and neighborhoods,” Schroeder stated.

Of the 250 dependents in Yolo County foster care, 65 are 16 to 20 years old, according to Schroeder.

Local foster families serve to support one another and connect regularly at ball games, barbecues, and holiday events.

To learn more about Yolo County foster care and adoption from foster care, a meeting is set for Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Woodland Community College in Room 727; or Monday, Oct. 29, at the West Sacramento Library in the Community Room. Both meetings are from 6 to 7:30 p.m. For information, call 574-1964; or visit website at www.yolofostercare.com.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
