Mission Statement

Yolo Community Care Continuum is a non-profit organization established to better the lives of people with a mental illness through direct services, advocacy, education and volunteer efforts.

YCCC excels as a dynamic presence in our community. Our goal is to provide client driven services that assist people to attain the highest level of mental health possible.

Description

Yolo Community Care Continuum (YCCC) has been providing community based mental health support services for over thirty years. The organization was founded in 1979 when a small group of concerned parents gathered to resolve a dilemma they shared. Each of the parents had young adult children who had been diagnosed with mental illnesses too severe to be cared for at home. They believed it would be beneficial to their children if they could live close by, in a community setting, while receiving the professional support necessary to avoid institutionalization. These parents decided to create a place that felt like home, where their children could get the professional treatment and compassionate support they needed to live as productive lives as possible. One couple donated a house and Yolo Community Care Continuum was born. Their vision has become a statewide model of mental health care.

Since those early days, YCCC not only has expanded our programs and services, but has also expanded the size and diversity of the population we serve in response to the community’s needs. The philosophy of our founders is still reflected today in the agency’s mission: to better the lives of people with a mental illness through direct services, advocacy, education and volunteer efforts. To meet this mission, YCCC manages four different programs offering compassionate, innovative direct services to clients. Each component of our service continuum is designed to meet each client’s needs at specific points in the recovery process. Our programs provide a continuum of service including crisis residential treatment, rehabilitative residential treatment, vocational rehabilitation, supportive housing, and support and referral for mentally ill, dual-diagnosis and homeless clients. In addition to providing direct services, our agency is actively involved in advocacy, education and volunteer efforts on behalf of persons with mental illness by addressing their health, social, emotional, economic and vocational needs in their communities. Our agency serves over 500 adult clients annually through our residential and outpatient programs.
