Stanford Sierra Youth & Families, in collaboration with the Yolo
County Children’s Alliance, provides Community Based Family
Services (CBFS). The program offers a wide array of specialized
mental/behavioral health services and supports and is designed to
provide a “safety-net” for Yolo County families with children and
youth (ages 0-21) who are struggling at home, school, or in the
community. The program is unique in that clinicians partner with
youth and their families to assess and determine an
individualized plan for services and supports that focuses on
family strengths and the overall emotional, behavioral health and
well-being of youth. Services are culturally competent, flexible,
family driven and can be provided in the home, school, and
community settings. The goals of the CBFS program include:
improving behavioral and mental health functioning; improving
school performance; strengthening family connections; reducing
the need for out of home placements, psychiatric
hospitalizations, and contact with law enforcement; increasing
permanency for foster youth; and connecting youth and families to
community-based resources and supports.
- Yolo County Medi-Cal eligible children and youth ages 0–21
may receive services through CBFS .
- Services are provided in Yolo County’s threshold languages,
including English, Spanish, and Russian.
- We always work with families and caregivers, and never work
with a child/youth in isolation.
- Services include: assessment, plan development, individual
and group therapy, rehabilitation services,case management,
medication support services, crisis intervention, and peer and
family advocate supports and services.
- We achieve excellent outcomes through our use of
evidence-based therapy modalities and best practices.
- Therapeutic services may be provided in the family’s home, in
the school setting, in the community setting of the family’s
choice, or in our conveniently located counseling center.
