We’re more than just a
Community health is more than seeing good doctors. When someone needs an advocate at an appointment, doesn’t know where to get food, or has complex health conditions, we’re here.
Health is more than treating illness. It includes physical activity, eating food that’s good for you, and having a safe place to sleep. It includes having everything you need for your child to start school, a good social support group, and services in your language offered in a way that works for you.
YCCO is invested in not only treating symptoms, but preventing them before they start and improving whole-community well-being. A stable, supportive environment makes everything healthier!
Community Programs that
Make a Difference
Yamhill Community Care works to provide quality community programs that address the Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) for Members.
The World Health Organization describes Social Determinants of Health as the following:
“Health starts in our homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities. We know that taking care of ourselves by eating well and staying active, not smoking, getting the recommended immunizations and screening tests, and seeing a doctor when we are sick all influence our health.
Our health is also determined in part by access to social and economic opportunities; the resources and supports available in our homes, neighborhoods, and communities; the quality of our schooling; the safety of our workplaces; the cleanliness of our water, food, and air; and the nature of our social interactions and relationships.”
