EXPERIENCE COLUSA COUNTY CAPC - COMMUNITY ADVOCATES FOR PARENTS & CHILDREN
WHO WE ARE
Here at Colusa County CAPC - Community Advocates for Parents & Children, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding, we have been determined to make an impact. The core of our efforts is to bring our team’s fresh ideas and passion to the range of activities we’re involved in. Through all of our endeavors we hope to display the conviction behind our beliefs. It is the mission of our council that we live in a community where children are valued, nurtured, and protected and will reach their full potential; where high functioning families provide an environment that allows to thrive. Where agencies throughout the community will collaborate to provide services to children and families and support them toward achieving their goals.
WAYS WE HELP
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences. It is our focus to assist families in accessing essential necessities that address needs such as food insecurity, essential supplies for disinfecting, diapering, and that support feminine hygiene. We operate a Mobile Food Pantry that distributes food to those in need throughout Colusa County as well as connects community members with enrollment into and connection with programs such as CalFresh, WIC, and alternate programs that offer food assistance. Colusa County CAPC operates a fully functional Family Resource Center that constantly reconstructs programming to meet the needs of families and to support them using a strengths-based approach.

We aim to build upon each family's unique strengths by offering a variety of resource connections, parenting education, and socialization programs for young children that focus on early learning and school readiness.
FOOD DONATION DROP-OFF & MOBILE FOOD PANTRY
We gladly accept donations of non-perishable foods that have not reached their expiration date and will disburse them to those in need.
2020 HOLIDAY PROGRAMS
Each year, Colusa County CAPC & FRC work to provide opportunities for families during the holidays. We understand how stressful the Holiday season can be for families and we are here to offer support. Each year, we team up with the California Highway Patrol, Williams Office to collect toys around the county and provide them to families in need for Christmas. Last year, we provided gifts to more than 180 children in Colusa County for Christmas. To learn more about the CHiPS for Kids Program, please visit the CHiPS for Kids Page on our site, located at the top.
Each year, our agency organizes the Angel Tree Program for Colusa County children who are currently placed out of their homes through the Foster Care System. We ensure that a sponsor is selected for each and every Angel and that gifts are wrapped and delivered to them before Christmas. By working with County Social Workers and Foster/Resource Families, each child completes a wish-list complete with their hobbies, interests, and specific needs. Generous sponsors collect items for each Angel and brings them to our office where they are organized, wrapped, and delivered. To learn more about the Angel Tree Program, please visit the Angel Tree Page on this site, located at the top.
If you are interested in donating to either of those programs, please contact our office at 530.458.7678, or visit our Family Resource Center website for more information. The website address is www.colusafrc.org.
