EMQ FamiliesFirst is a local nonprofit social service organization dedicated to bettering the lives of children and families through a variety of programs tailored to each individual. Job seekers are encouraged to apply due to high turnover. A variety of positions are available for individuals with high school diplomas, bachelors, and masters degrees. Like most nonprofits, wages are low unless you have a masters degree. Full-time workers receive paid sick and vacation leave, medical, dental, and vision insurance, 401k match, life insurance, and a training stipend of $1800 a year.

On June 13th, 2013, the California Department of Social Services announced that they had revoked FamiliesFirst's license to operate the Davis group home. The move was likely connected to several recent issues at the location, including ongoing investigations into several cases of assault and rape. The formerly boys only facility became coed in recent years. CEO Darrell Evora said two days later that he would fight to stay open.

  • Yolo Crisis Nursery
  • Progress Ranch
  • Foster care
  • Day treatment
  • Residential treatment
  • Non-Public School
