Yolo County Association of Realtors Presents Yolo Crisis Nursery with $10,000 Gift
Friday, November 16, 2018: Woodland, CA. The Yolo County Association of Realtors presented the Yolo Crisis Nursery with a donation in excess of $10,000 at their weekly meeting. This donation represents the proceeds of the Association of Realtors’ Annual Golf Tournament and Poker Run held in October and an anonymous gift from a member of the Association. The Yolo Crisis Nursery is honored to receive this gift and deeply touched by the Association’s generosity.
“As an Association we strive to house, feed and clothe the people of Yolo County. This donation of over $10,000 represents a 148% increase over last year’s golf tournament proceeds,” states Nick Marin, Executive Director, Yolo County Association of Realtors. “It is our privilege to give the proceeds of our most successful golf tournament to date to the Yolo Crisis Nursery.”
“Our nursery relies on the generosity of our community to keep our doors open. Thank you for helping to make Yolo County a better place today and nurturing our future by supporting the youngest and most vulnerable members of our community,” says Becky Heard, Vice President, Yolo Crisis Nursery Board of Directors. “Last year we cared for 321 families, almost a new family every day. This gift will have a huge impact on the children and families we serve at the Nursery.”
Parenting is hard. Since 2001, The Yolo Crisis Nursery has been there to help. Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the Nursery offers respite childcare for families in crisis with children ages birth through 5 years old. The Nursery offers wrap-around services to keep families together, help them navigate crises, and prevent child abuse and neglect. Our wrap-around services help parents resolve the problems that brought them to our door. In fact, 97% of our clients do not get referred to or go through Child Protective Services. Our services are voluntary and free of charge. Without the generosity of groups like the Yolo County Association of Realtors and others in our community, the nursery would not exist.
