Welcome to the Short Term Emergency Aid Committee Website

Welcome to the Short Term Emergency Aid Committee, better known around Yolo County as STEAC. STEAC is one of the oldest nonprofit organizations in Yolo County, located some 15 miles from Sacramento in central California.

A volunteer-oriented organization, STEAC's purpose is to provide immediate, short-term emergency assistance with basic necessities to families and individuals whose incomes are at or below the federal poverty level.

Founded in 1967, STEAC provides rental and utility assistance, food and clothing to those in need in the county's cities of Davis, Woodland, West Sacramento, Winters and the rural areas of the county.Over the years, STEAC has come to be recognized as providing a critical safety net for those whose needs cannot be met by other charitable or government agencies.

STEAC's volunteers provide assistance to residents who are referred by public and nonprofit agencies. After a screening, the volunteers determine whether residents qualify for assistance from any of these programs:

  • Eviction Prevention Program
  • Utility Assistance Program
  • First Month's Rent Program
  • Educational Assistance Program
  • Suit Up for Success Program
  • Free Food Program
  • Holiday Adopt-A-Family Program
  • Community Volunteers Program

STEAC provide assistance only to low income residents who live in Yolo County.
