Community ImpactFirst 5 LA is committed to making a meaningful impact in the communities that we serve.

We believe in demonstrating the results of our investments and improving our practices through the evaluation of our initiatives.

Our evaluation efforts contribute to organizational learning and create opportunities to truly make a difference in the lives of children and families in Los Angeles County.

How We’re Accountable

We are committed to learning from our efforts on many levels, and as part of our Strategic Plan we have adopted a revised Accountability Framework. The new framework emphasizes guidance, learning and oversight from the Grantee, Initiative (Program) and Commission levels. We are currently focusing more of our efforts on evaluating the collective impact of our investments.
