Re: TUESDAY Sept 18th: Yolo Family Strengthening Network (YFSN) meeting agenda

Tracy Fauver ·
Hi Lori. There is some school involvement in the YFSN group, which meet quarterly. You might also be thinking about Resilient Yolo, which meets monthly and includes YCOE and other school partners among its collaborators. The next Resilient Yolo meeting is October 5th at 2:30 at the CASA/YCRC offices. But some to the YFSN meeting tomorrow to see what it's all about!
