What We Do:


Colusa County CAPC is the designated Child Abuse Prevention Council for Colusa County. We are a local non-profit organization serving families in Colusa County by collaborating with other local entities to prevent child abuse. 

It is the mission of this 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.

Please visit the About Page for more information on the Colusa County CAPC Board, including an area to meet our Board Members, how to participate, and much more!

We build on family's strengths by increasing 5 Protective Factors.

Parental Resilience

Parental resilience is the ability to manage and bounce back from all types of challenges that emerge in every family's life.

Concrete Support

Services and supports that provide stability, treatment, and help for families to thrive.

Social-Emotional Competence of Children

A child or youth's ability to self-regulate and manage emotions reduces extra stress on families. With appropriate expectations and opportunities to practice skills, children can learn more about regulation.

The 5 Protective Factors

Social Connections

Building positive relationships with other parents can provide emotional support and advice or just someone to listen.

Knowledge of Parenting & Child Development

Having accurate information and appropriate expectations for children's behavior at ever age gives parents an understanding of their children's behavior and promotes healthy relationships and development.

Looking for ways you can help?

Have you considered opening your heart and your home to a child? Becoming a Resource Family is a great way to help children who are currently in out-of-home care by providing a child with the feeling of safety, permanence, and well-being.

Resource Family Approval (RFA) is a family-friendly and child-centered caregiver approval process that combines elements of the current foster parent licensing, relative approval processes, and approvals for adoption and guardianship and replaces those processes.
