FFCC’s Local Impact




 Our Vision

FFCC is an organization whose purpose is to provide opportunities for all segments of our community to come and serve together. We believe it is through our efforts of caring for each other that our community is made stronger.


It's All About Partnerships!

Our organization has partnered with many different entities such as Health & Human Services, Rotary International, Kiwanis International, the faith community, schools, businesses & families.  We recognize more can be accomplished if we collaborate together.


FFCC has been involved with a variety of programs and projects. Since 1996, we have contributed to our community through after-school homework clubs, providing free sports leagues, a literacy program, supporting foster families & coming alongside government organizations like WIC.

 We currently provide opportunities for volunteers to join us in serving the homeless, caring for our low income seniors, supporting our food pantry, meeting specific needs for struggling families, participating in food packaging events and more. 


 Do You Need Community Service Hours?

FFCC welcomes volunteers of all ages.  We provide community service hour documentation for students who require it for school. 


Join Us!

Most of all, we welcome your involvement.  Do you know of ways we can involve our community in caring for each other?  Do you have an expertise that our projects can benefit from?  Do you have resources you able to contribute?  Do you have time to give?  FFCC is the organization it is today because our community has contributed in all these ways and we welcome you to join us! Contact one of our FFCC Coordinators, shown on the left, for more information on how to get involved.
