Rooted in the bayanihan spirit of community fostered by the Filipino immigrants that settled in Sonoma County in the 1920s, the Filipino American Community of Sonoma County, Inc., fondly known as FACSCI, firmly established its home in 1972, when officers and members hd the foresight to purchase a building located at 3361 Fulton Road, Fulton, CA, the Filipino Community Center.
It is there that the Filipino Community provided community programs for low income and senior citizens in Sonoma County. In the 70s and 80s, board officers and community members worked hand in hand with the California Human Development Corporation and what is now known as the Council on Aging to provide meals to senior citizens. The Center was one of the main dining sites. In addition, low income seniors were hired to tend a community garden that produced vegetables for the dining site.
Today, the Filipino American Community of Sonoma County promotes community spirit by offering activities focused on raising the economic, welfare, educational and social conditions of Filipino Americans residing in Sonoma County. We work hand in hand with government, private and non-profit organizations to promote mutual understanding, respect and positive advancement of the community at large.
