The Impact of Investing in Early Childhood


First 5 is charged with making a difference in the lives of Ventura County children and families through a network of health, early learning and family strengthening programs in partnership with our 11 community based Neighborhoods for Learning.

To ensure that we are making a difference and reaching the children and families that can benefit the most, we work closely with the First 5 Ventura County Commission, funded and community partners, parents, healthcare and education providers, and experts in the fields of evaluation and quality improvement. This work guides our program development and funding and helps us make sure that we are doing our best to support young children and families in Ventura County.
