Latest News and Events
We're building a new website! It will reflect our recent teaming up with Yolo Hospice. It's currently under construction and will contain everything from this website and more... You will still be able to access CWC from the same address www.citizenswhocare.us. In fact, one day you'll magically be at our new website!
Thank you to everyone who helped CWC raise $8600+ through the Big Day of Giving 2018. All donations will go toward opening an adult daycare center in Davis to help serve the growing need for these services.
Regrettably, CWC's 2018 Annual Benefit Concert, previously scheduled for February 2 & 3, 2018, has been canceled due to production issues. Should new dates be determined information will be posted on this website. Thank you for your understanding.
Big Day of Giving 2017: Thank you to all those who contributed to this year's Big Day of Giving. Your generosity helped us to raise $7,300!

What We Do
social support services to Yolo County adults and their family caregivers.
These services are provided by trained, caring volunteers, with the
support of our professional staff.
RESPITE VISITING PROGRAM provides family caregivers of older adults
with a weekly break from caregiving. We provide companionship and social
support to both the older adult and the caregiver. Our respite volunteers
are trained and supported by CWC's professional staff.
HOSPITAL VISITING PROGRAM provides companionship and mental stimulation
to socially isolated, elderly residents. Volunteers of all ages are
matched with residents. Pet visiting volunteers bring their friendly,
well-behaved pets to lift the spirits of residents. Each convalescent hospital volunteer is trained by our Director of Volunteers.
CWC Saturday Club (formerly Time Off for Caregivers) offers site-based social respite activities
at the Davis Senior Center two Saturdays a month, giving caregivers
a five-hour break each program day. A healthy lunch and stimulating
activities are provided. Our professional staff provides periodic individual
assessments of the participants. Read more >>
