The Resource Desk
What Is The Resource Desk?
Founded in September 2013, The Resource Desk seeks to address social factors that impact health. We connect families to vital resources offered by local agencies and nonprofits and offer on-going support as families connect with and obtain services.
Our community resource specialists are UC Davis undergraduates volunteers. After undergoing an intensive 2-day training they spend a at least six months working with families in the UC Davis Pediatric Clinic at the Sacramento County Health Center. Specialists are prepared to match their clients with a variety of local resources including: food, clothing, childcare & employment assistance.
Since our clinic launch in January 2014, our specialists have worked with over 1500 families and connected with over 400 different Sacramento area organizations!
