What is the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Humboldt? 

An alliance for end-of-life planning, advocacy for dignified and economic end-of-life choices

Funeral Consumers Alliance of Humboldt (FCAH) is a non-denominational, non-profit consumer organization, incorporated in California in 1965, to educate its members and the public about State and Federal funeral and cemetery regulations and to assist in providing access to simple, dignified and economical end of life services. It is NOT a pre-payment plan, and it does not sell insurance or services.  

 

FCAH is a member of the national Funeral Consumers Alliance, with more than 100 affiliates around the U.S. Our community advocacy group assists in keeping the cost of death as low as feasible, while respecting your wishes.

 

The Board of Directors and its officers serve without pay and are elected at the annual meeting where each member is entitled to vote.  If you believe that pre-planning is preferable to making funeral arrangements under stress and if you wish to relieve your survivors of making difficult decisions while grieving and emotionally vulnerable, then consider joining and using the FCA of Humboldt.
