Welcome to the Short Term Emergency Aid Committee, better known around Yolo County as STEAC (spelled differently, but pronounced the same as the steak, the meat). Founded in 1967, STEAC is one of the oldest nonprofit organizations Yolo County. It is located in Davis, a central California community about 15 miles west of Sacramento. STEAC is a volunteer-oriented organization.

STEAC's purpose is to provide immediate, short-term emergency aid to families and individuals with incomes at or below the federal poverty level who live in Yolo County. Assistance includes providing help with food, rental, utility and job readiness.

For neary 50 years STEAC has provided a critical safety net for those whose needs cannot be met by other charitable or government agencies. For needy residents, it is often the agency of last resort for assistance.

THANK YOU to the students, teachers, families, district staff, and volunteers who participated in the recent Davis Schools Food Drive for STEAC! Over 2,000 pounds of food were donated this year, which is nearly double the amount collected last year.

We'd like to say a special thank you to Laura, Erin and Vanessa from the district office, and to STEAC volunteers Mona and Loyla for all of their help in making this food drive such a success.


The Grand Opening on Wednesday, June 1st, was fabulous! Thanks to everyone who came out in the heat to help us celebrate. We are very grateful for the support from the Davis community, including Davis Council Members Robb Davis & Lucas Frerichs, Davis City Manager Dirk Brazil, Assistant City Manager Mike Webb, members of St. Martin's Church, Andrew Benware, Lois Wolk's representative, STEAC volunteers, girl scouts with T-Shirt bags for our closet, and Eric Roe - our amazing Project Manager who donated all of his time to manage this project!

Thank you to all!
