The Vacaville Police Department operates the Family Resource Center.

The FRC is a free drop-in referral and information center for Vacaville residents that provides assistance to promote self reliance and self improvement. Available resources and referrals include: current job listings, resume assistance, budgeting help, counseling, parenting information and resources, childcare services referrals, recreational activities, community activities, housing information and assistance with emergency basic needs (food, shelter, and utilities). The FRC works in collaboration with the Vacaville Community Welfare Association to provide one-time assistance with emergency vouchers for food, gas, and prescriptions (as funding allows). Services provided in English and Spanish.
Youth and Family Resource Guide
The Youth and Family Resource Guide is a compilation of various resources available to youth and families in Vacaville and Solano County. While every effort is made to keep this guide current, we cannot ensure the accuracy of information, as programs often change.
On any given night, within the City limits, somewhere between 14 to 200 Vacaville residents don’t have a bed of their own to sleep in. While the exact number of homeless Vacaville residents cannot be quantified, there are a number of reliable estimates, based on the efforts of those who serve this population. Many of these individuals have called Vacaville home for decades.
