The Yolo County Cultural Competency team/committee strives to ensure that Yolo County’s commitment to cultural and linguistic competency are reflected throughout the HHSA system, and that staff training and program policies reflect this commitment and manifest racial, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic diversity. The primary goal of this group is to produce, implement and maintain a Cultural Competence Plan which includes the statements of mission, philosophy, plans, policies, procedures and key documents relating to a system-wide commitment to cultural and linguistic competence.
