Welcome to the Short Term Emergency Aid Committee, better known around Yolo County as STEAC. Founded in 1967, STEAC is one of the oldest nonprofit organizations Yolo County. It is located in Davis, a central California community about 15 miles west of Sacramento. STEAC is a volunteer-oriented organization.

STEAC's purpose is to provide immediate, short-term emergency aid to families and individuals with incomes at or below the federal poverty level who live in Yolo County. Assistance includes providing help with food, rental, utility and job readiness. Since 1967, STEAC has provided a critical safety net for those whose needs cannot be met by other charitable or government agencies. For needy residents, it is often the agency of last resort for assistance.
