Episode 19 of the COVID-19 Report highlights the work of two local nonprofit/community leader rock stars - Anne-Marie Flynn, Outreach Development Coordinator for Mutual Housing California, and Gina Daleiden, Executive Director of First 5 Yolo. Both organizations serve important roles working with very specific communities within Yolo County. Both work with a variety of community partners, and each had to do a hard pivot to meet need during this unprecedented time.
Mutual Housing of California currently has 19 community sites in the Sacramento/Yolo region including five in Davis and one in Woodland. They specialize in not only providing affordable housing, but also focus on strenghthening the ties among residents to their broader community and providing opportunities for developing leadership skills.
First 5 Yolo supplies a wealth of information on their website. With respect to their continuing services and resources for navigating the needs of the current COVID-19 pandemic link here. Another important initiative that is still very active is the Help Me Grow Yolo program.
