Mission: Family Care Foundation (FCF) is a public charity that operates programs and provides support and training for grassroots organizations in developing countries. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for all members of the international community, especially those who are poor, suffering, or disadvantaged. We participate in a wide range of community-based initiatives, providing direct services, disaster relief, as well as funding, training, technical assistance and coordination services. Grants are given to selected grassroots groups with well-organized local programs, where wisely placed funding can make a significant difference. To enhance the quality of life of a family, resources and opportunities must be available. While resources and opportunities are readily obtainable in developed nations, the same can be lacking in developing countries. By helping launch new programs around the globe, and by investing time, training, and funding in the grassroots groups that we identify, FCF is able to deploy these resources where they are most needed and have the biggest impact. As a result of this approach, our global relief and development network, the Mission Support and Humanitarian Services Program (MSHSP) now provides both emergency services and sustained development for communities, families and children in over 50 countries.

Had a great experience with this organization. They were very good with answering my questions and gave me all the facts about where the donation was going. They seem to really know what they're doing in their space and their passion for the work is rare. I would definitely donate again.

I donated my car to this charity back in 2008 and then again a few months back and was very impressed with how professional and courteous their team was on both occasions. The whole process went very smoothly from start to finish, from submitting my cars to the pickups. They got me everything I need to file my taxes and what more can I say? Even the tow service was top notch. That's what I want to see more of.

I had the pleasure of meeting the Family Care Foundation team firsthand and observed them in action at their headquarters in Dulzura. They really do an amazing job assisting a wide range of charitable endeavors. Although I wish my schedule allowed me to actually volunteer some of my time to their medical missions overseas, for now I am satisfied knowing that my donations are being administered well and are providing assistance to real people and well managed projects.

I spent a month over in Africa helping a charity which was a project of Family Care Foundation. Family Care Foundation was one of the main foundations that made it possible for this charity to operate and perform an incredible, life saving service to orphans in Uganda. I have donated to this charity since my experience and have been impressed with how they efficiently they handled my donations, tax receipts and all the detailed involved. Keep up the good work!

Officials with the Family Care Foundation (FCF) steadfastly deny this, but FCF has long been accused of having ties with the controversial evangelical sex cult called the Family (formerly known as the Children of God), started in the late 1960s by Oakland native David "Moses" Berg.

Here are two links that claim the connection. One is a story from the San Francisco Chronicle and the other is from a site that works against The Family.
