The Wasco County Commission on Children & Families (WCCCF) plans, advocates and mobilizes the community to act on behalf of children, youth, and families; promoting their health, safety, and well being. In addition, WCCCF receives and manages grant resources, such as state, federal, and private foundation grants for distribution to community based agencies, organizations, and individuals. Grant resources include, but not limited to:
