Donate to the WCC Foster & Kinship Care Education Program

Because you care,
we are making a difference one child at a time…

Sisters

Please help us continue to assist Yolo County families – foster, kinship and adoptive – to help children reach their full potential. We provide a voice on behalf of Yolo County’s children placed in foster care, from infants through young adults participating in Extended Foster Care. Support our critically needed work with a fully tax-deductible donation, and know that you’ve helped the hurt and vulnerable children, who through no fault of their own need a place to call home.

All children deserve a safe and loving home. Give now.

We are in continual need of funds, particularly for “essential shopping” at the time of placement. We have had a recent surge of children brought into protective custody, and our shopping funding has been depleted twice as quickly as normal.

To each of you that have contributed to providing the support and essential gift cards and services, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Since 1985, WCC FKCE has helped thousands of families and children manage the challenges faced by foster, kinship and adoptive families. In 2013 alone, WCC FKCE made the following
impact with the help of donations like yours:

  • The classes are invaluable and I can’t imagine trying to manage the immediate task of accepting three kids into our family without guidance or help.

    700 hours of essential education for foster, kinship & adoptive parents
  • Essential Placement Shopping - shopping trips for newly placed foster children & families
  • Parties and picnics throughout the year
  • 90 Christmas gifts were purchased and given to children living in foster or relative care in Yolo County

There are over 270 reasons to provide support to families caring for children placed outside their birth families, as this is the number of children currently under the umbrella and supervision of Child Welfare Services in Yolo County.    

My child received a shopping trip when he was first placed as a newborn that saved us. We stocked up on all the essentials to start us off - lots of diapers, wipes and formula, some bottles and pacifiers.


If you have any questions about supporting WCC FKCE or would like to learn more about our important work in the community, please contact Program Director Cherie Schroeder at (530) 574-1964.

Thank you for your support!

The picnics and parties that are offered throughout the year are great fun. Most importantly, they give parents the opportunity to talk with other parents, and they give our kids a chance to be with others that are in the same situation as they are.

The classes were great, and the shopping opportunity at Target amazing!  Our family wants to extend our utmost thanks for the Target Kinship Care Essential Purchase scholarships – so much to buy and get done in a very short period of time. 

Our story is like so many others, we were called the day before the girls were to be placed with us; there just wasn’t time to prepare.

Attending the orientation classes was invaluable, both in terms of information and support.  We truly are thankful for the dedication offered to families like ours. We feel appreciated, supported and better able to take on the challenges before us in raising the 2 vulnerable little girls that have come to live with us.
