Emergency Rental Assistance Program

Solano County is partnering with Catholic Charities on the Emergency Rental Assistance Program, providing Solano renters who have or are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID 19 with rental and utility assistance.  As part of this effort, Application Assistance Centers have been established in each city of the County to help people complete the online application and/or upload required documents.


Dixon Family Services is the Application Assistance Center in Dixon.  Please call for an appointment to start the process.  707-678-0442 If you call when we are closed or busy helping others, please leave a message with a name and phone number where you can be reached.


Attached are flyers with information regarding eligibility and where each Application Center is located. If you would like to learn more about ERAP or have any questions, please visit www.ccyoso.org/solanoerap.


If you live in one of the other Solano County cities, see the flyer for location and contact information of the Application Assistance Center in your city.

May the Fourth be with us as the community is very supportive of the upcoming Dixon Family Services (DFS) fund raising event, DRIVE AND DINE FOR DFS.

This is our first attempt at doing a “drive-thru” event to raise much-needed funds.  We welcome all who would like to help.   Come to the meeting if you can.  Give us a call or email ahead of time so we know about how many to expect.  Thank you.


The planning meeting is at Dixon Family Services at 4 PM on Tuesday, May 4.  If you cannot make the meeting, but want to help, please contact Cookie at 678-0442 or cookie@dixonfamilyservices.org or Sarah at 678-5594 or stop in at the Dixon Tribune.


Due to Covid-19 DFS has had to cancel plans for our signature event, Comedy Night for the 2nd year in a row.

Also due to Covid-19 the need for services provided at DFS over the last 14 months has more than doubled.  ESSENTIAL to many who live in Dixon, we have remained open throughout the pandemic.


Tickets to Drive and Dine for DFS are a $35 donation and include a fantastic Barbeque Dinner, a chance to win a cash door prize and 10 complimentary raffle tickets.  Dinner tickets can be purchased at Dixon Florist and Gifts, Dixon Tribune or Dixon Family Services.  We are also happy to put them in the mail to you.


People have asked if they can purchase raffle tickets to increase their chances of winning prizes and the answer is yes.  Call 678-0442 or email cookie@dixonfamilyservices.org by the day before the event.  Raffle tickets are $3 each, $10 for 4 or $20 for 10.  This is another great way to support the fund raising effort if you’re not interested in the full meal ticket deal.


We have a wonderful assortment of raffle prizes thanks to local donors like Pam Griffey, Superior Farms, Nugget Market, Sally and Bob Adams, Scandia Family Center, Fairytale Town, In-N-Out Burger, KUIU, Wooden Valley Winery and we are expecting many more to come in before the May 21 event.   Please contact us if you want to donate a prize.  We are happy to pick it up.


Please feel free to join the list of fantastic businesses, organizations and individuals with a sponsorship.  So far we have sponsorship pledges from The Lions Club, Rotary, VFW 8151, Cache Creek Casino, Tully Consulting, The Printing Shop, Mary and Dennis Andrew, Roberta Wallace, Your Town Monthly, Dixon Tribune, Chavez Transport Inc. and we are hearing from new silver and gold sponsors each week.   A Silver Sponsorship is a $500 donation and Gold is for a $1,000 donation.


We have also been blessed with varying amounts of donation checks from community members and businesses to help us make a nice profit from this event.  We are so very grateful to everyone who helps us with the Drive and Dine and to all donors throughout the year.  We could not do all we do to help people in need without generous community members who support our good work.


Please if you know of someone struggling with their basic needs of rent, utilities, food and other essentials due to Covid-19 or other unexpected financial hardship, ask them to call or email Dixon Family Services to see if we can help.  Thank you.
