South County Services, Diversity and Dedication

Our organization was founded as the Galt Community Concilio and was reborn as South County Services to reflect our broad geographical and demographic reach. We’ve been providing important human services to the region for 42 years.

Our goal is to promote health and well being and economic self-sufficiency for the geographic service area of South Sacramento County includes the cities of Galt, Elk Grove, South Sacramento and the River Delta areas of Walnut Grove, Isleton, Courtland, Hood and Locke. We serve as a Safety Net for people throughout the area.

This region includes great diversity in lifestyles – from rural to urban and suburban. It is also characterized by great ethnic diversity with people from around the world calling South Sacramento County their home.

It’s our desire to serve each of our clients with dignity, compassion and strong advocacy as they face a variety of challenges. We have programs and resources for individuals, support services for families and a robust program for seniors.

Throughout the year we conduct community outreach activities to inform the community about our services and resources. Media coverage of our events and work help to inform the public and encourages donations of time, materials and funds.

Community and media outreach also helps us recruit new volunteers to help South County Services grow stronger and better. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization. We count them as valuable assets in our organization.

We also are part of a large, comprehensive network of community based services that create our regional Safety Net. These relationships help us tap into new sources of funding and models we may replicate in our program.
