Tehama County Children and Families Commission (TCCFC)
established in 1998, recognized the compelling need to create and
implement a comprehensive, collaborative, and integrated system of
information and services to support, and optimize early childhood
development beginning at the prenatal stage to five (5) years of age.
Proper parenting, nurturing and health care during these early years
will provide the means for California’s children to enter school in good
health, emotionally well-developed, and ready and able to learn.
The Tehama County Children and Families Commission, consisting of
nine (9) members, use Prop. 10 funding to fill resource gaps and create
new crosscutting projects that bring together resources from different
programs and parts of the community to serve young children in a new
and more effective way. The commission meets on the 4th Tuesday of
the month except July, September, and December, at 3 p.m. at the
Tehama County Department of Education Board Room, 1135 Lincoln
Street, Red Bluff. Your attendance is welcome!
