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.
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.
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.
We offer customized, educational presentations and trainings to stay informed about child abuse and it's prevention.
Parenting doesn't come with a Manual - we have valuable information to help navigate your parenting journey with a variety of topics and classes available online or in-person.

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.
