Who We Are
Yamhill Community Care understands the link between early childhood education and health, and its Early Learning Hub supports programs like home visiting services, parenting classes, and child care coordination. To date, Yamhill Community Care is the only coordinated care organization to be awarded an Early Learning Hub by the Oregon Department of Education’s Early Learning Division. By being embedded in Yamhill Community Care, we are able to facilitate the creation of a holistic system of care through collaboration between medical providers, early learning providers and school districts.
We work together with the community to coordinate and align services to strengthen families and to improve the health and education of children.
To address the social determinants of health, YCCO’s Early Learning Hub supports the coordination of numerous programs for parents and children, such as home visiting, parenting groups and school readiness activities. They also provide supports for providers such as professional development and networking opportunities, trauma-informed care trainings and work planning assistance, and service integration teams. Our goal is to ensure that all young children and families have access to resources that that address the social determinants of health to support their educational development and lifetime wellness.
All young children and their families engage in quality coordinated resources that support their growth, development and a healthy life trajectory.
The Yamhill Early Learning Council will work collaboratively to support coordinated systems that are child-centered, family friendly, culturally and linguistically appropriate, and community-based to meet the needs of the Yamhill County population and communities.
Our Three Objectives
