Our mission is to provide a safe and comfortable setting to network, share and acquire skills, to access services and create a better childhood for our youngest citizens.
The Family Action Centers of Colusa County (FACCC) consist of the Arbuckle Family Action Center and the Williams Family Action Center. In response to the great need for local support for children and their families within Colusa County, the Arbuckle Center opened in 2002, and the Williams Center in 2006. As of November 9, 2007, both centers joined to establish a 501(c)(3), non-profit agency: The Family Action Centers of Colusa County (FACCC) in an effort to improve and sustain services and programs. As always, we will continue to depend on community support to be successful. We thank our community for not only helping us as we grow, but also for allowing us to better serve the community.
The Arbuckle Family Action Center is, in large part, funded through First 5 Colusa. In 1998, the California Children and Families Act (Proposition 10) was enacted, increasing taxes on tobacco products in order to provide funds to create a comprehensive and integrated delivery system to information and services to promote early childhood development from prenatal to age 5. This movement has since become known as “First 5” to emphasize the importance of the first five years of each child’s life.
There are many agencies that contribute greatly to all we are able to provide for the community.
