Yolo Community Care Continuum

aka YCCC   |   Davis, CA   |  http://www.y3c.org

Mission

YCCC was founded by a group of parents who wanted a home-like environment for their young adult children who had been diagnosed with mental illness too severe to be cared for at home. The services developed by YCCC have become a statewide model of mental health care. It is estimated that one in ten families will be touched by a form of mental illness. Today, YCCC continues to develop innovative services in response to community need.

We serve the residents of Yolo and Placer counties.

Safe Harbor Crisis House

Safe Harbor Crisis House and Cornerstone Crisis Residential are short term residential treatment programs which provides crisis intervention in a supportive, group living environment for adults who are experiencing acute psychiatric symptoms. The programs are designed for individuals who need an intermediate step between a hospital stay and returning home or who wish a more structured setting in order to prevent psychiatric hospitalization. Services emphasize defining and limiting the crisis, planning for the immediate future and mobilizing appropriate community, family and personal resources. This is accomplished through both group planning and individual counseling sessions. In addition to working on individual goals, each resident participates in running the household. This includes preparing and serving meals, cleaning and care of the house and grounds.

The Farmhouse is a long-term adult residential treatment program that offers a group living environment. Adults live and work cooperatively at the Farmhouse, learning the skills necessary to make a successful transition from a highly structured, locked treatment environment to a less restricted form of independent living.

The Farmhouse offers residential treatment and a prevocational program called Farm to Mouth. The residential program concentrates on teaching independent living, medication and symptom management and social skills for successful community living. All residents share equally in the maintenance of the house, preparation of meals and planning of various group activities as a means to learn the skills they need to live independently in the community. The Farm to Mouth program, assists residents in acquiring and improving the many skills necessary for a successful work experience by teaching them gardening and farming practices.

The Greater Access Program (GAP) offers individualized services targeted to those who are unable to participate in traditional services. The range of services is comprehensive and flexible and includes outreach and engagement, wrap around services, and treatment for mental health, substance abuse and co-occurring issues. Interventions are carried out in convenient welcoming settings, rather than in hospitals or clinics and individuals are engaged in treatment in nontraditional ways. Referrals come from homeless shelters, concerned citizens, faith-based groups, law enforcement and Community Based Organizations. Consumers participate in the development of a treatment plan that is focused on their goals and desired achievements. A range of services are available from mental health crisis stabilization to appointments with a psychiatrist for evaluation and medication assessment to enrollment in a low cost or free medicine program. There is also substance abuse treatment programs and housing options.

New Dimension Supported Housing provides cooperative living opportunities through the YCCC housing program. Houses and congregate living apartments are located in Davis and Woodland. At each house, residents have their own room and do their own shopping and cooking. House meetings, facilitated by a YCCC, help residents to divide chores and provide mutual support. Staff also provide individual support to those who need help with activities of daily living or managing their mental health symptoms. Because residents are very-low income (30% of AMI), losing housing often means homelessness. However with education, support, and a sense of hope, many individuals are not only able to live independently, but also to attend school, get a job, and become contributing members of our community.

Housing Now Network is a housing assistance program providing coordination of housing openings in Yolo county. The program assists individuals with locating, obtaining and retaining independent housing.

The Farm to Mouth program provides job skills training and employment for people with a major mental illness plus much needed fresh food to local homeless shelters. Individuals have the opportunity to learn farm skills and work readiness skills that give them a sense of hope and a feeling of connection to the community that they live in. The skills that they learn can lead to paid positions which can lessen their dependence on disability benefits and increase their self sufficiency. The produce from the project can help to improve the access to healthy fresh food for under nourished people in Yolo County who utilize the homeless shelters for food and thus improve their opportunity for better health.
