Empower Yolo has expanded to several buildings throughout Yolo County to serve abused women & children, provide transitional housing, legal assistance, financial literacy, healthcare advocacy & resources. Buildings include upgrades to 175 Walnut in Woodland, confidential shelter at private location, 441 D Street in Davis (Donated by Davis Community Church), facilities in W. Sac & Knights Landing. All the buildings need inside and outside painting. Grants for Empower Yolo are limited to programs for clients and do not cover building upgrades or maintenance. I'm on the board for Empower Yolo. I know that Brooks Painting has been a very generous donor and supporter. As we are faced with limited funding to serve our (unfortunately) expanding client base, we need your expert services to help paint and maintain our facilities so our clients can feel safer and respected in well maintained buildings. Thank you! www.empoweryolo.org
The Farmhouse is a long-term residential treatment program that offers those living with a mental illness a group living environment. Adults live and work (Farm to Mouth program) at the Farmhouse cooperatively, learning the skills necessary to transition from a highly structured treatment environment to a less structured independent living situation. Last year, YCCC completed the outside renovation of the Farmhouse but we ran out of funds to be able to complete the inside of the Farmhouse. The inside of the Farmhouse is in desperate need of re-painting. This program has been serving those with mental health problems for nearly 40 years. http://y3c.org/farmhouse1.aspx
The current Yolo County Food Bank building has been sold out from under them. They were able to secure a new warehouse for a very low cost just down the street from their current building. We are in the process of raising money to retrofit this new Food Bank building, making it even better, more sustainable, and able to feed more people than the last. The campaign for this new, improved Food Bank is called End Hunger Yolo. Our committee has been working to raise money for this project for over a year! We break ground on our new building this May. The potential to end hunger in Yolo County is a true possibility with a larger, more cost efficient, sustainable Food Bank. As an End Hunger Yolo committee volunteer, I believe Brooks Painting's charity giveaway would be a huge help to our endeavor, providing a beautiful, fresh start to our new Yolo County Food Bank.Thank you for your consideration!
