Three forums have been scheduled in April to hear input from local residents on what programs are needed to help low-income Yolo County residents attain the skills, knowledge and motivation necessary to achieve self-sufficiency.

The information will be used by the county’s Community Services Action Board and Department of Employment and Social Services to set service priorities for the federal Community Services Block Grant program.

To determine needs, the Community Services Action Board will host forums:

* Tuesday, April 9, at 5:30 p.m. at the Department of Employment and Social Services Community Room, 500-A Jefferson St. in West Sacramento;

* Wednesday, April 10, at 5:30 p.m. at the Department of Employment and Social Services Community Room, 25 N. Cottonwood St. in Woodland; and

* Thursday, April 11, at 5:30 p.m. in Rooms 6 & 7 at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, 640 Hawthorn Lane in Davis.

“We value input from the community regarding our efforts in assisting people with some of the most basic life needs,” said Ed Smith, interim director of the county department. “We also value our partners under the Community Service Block Grant process — Davis Community Meals, Food Bank of Yolo County, Peoples Resources and United Christian Centers.”

Added Duane Chamberlain, chairman of the Yolo County Board of Supervisors, “It is really important that Yolo County residents participate in these forums so we can better understand the needs of our residents and so (we) can provide the tools necessary for our families to be healthy and successful.”

For more information, call Rene Sosa-Galindo at 530-661-2738.
