The June Forbes Memorial Fund for Understanding and Recovery celebrates the legacy of our long-time volunteer and NAMI Yolo President, June Forbes. When June spoke about recovery her vision was that all people living with a diagnosis of mental illness would have access to safe housing, fun things to do, meaningful work and supportive relationships. Contributions to June’s memorial fund will be used to support NAMI Yolo county in their efforts to achieve this vision

Section 8 Housing Waiting List

Yolo County Housing has announced an upcoming purge to the wait list for Section 8 housing. 

They will mail you a letter to the address they have for you (if you are on the wait list). If you do not answer it promptly, they will remove you from the voucher waiting list.

The department has informed us that “it is vital that applicants, or their advocates, update their mailing address, in writing, any time it changes and that they check their mail box frequently because we will contact them by mail when their name reaches the top of the waiting list.”

Yolo County Housing will let NAMI Yolo County know when the purge letters will be sent. There is no exact date yet; the plan is to start the process within 2 – 4 weeks.

In the meantime, applicants can verify the status of their application for housing assistance by telephone. Applicants should call (530) 662-5428, extension 1900 and be ready to enter their social security number.
