For over 50 years, FCCAA has provided comprehensive health and human services that meet the needs of the poverty-ridden and economically depressed Fayette County. FCCAA programming includes addressing emergency needs, such as food and shelter for the newly poor, the recently unemployed, and the homeless. Long-term needs focus on empowering and equipping individuals and families to achieve self-sufficiency through adequate health care, nutrition, education, employment, and socialization skills, in addition to community development initiatives.
