“There has never been a more exciting time at First 5 LA than now.”

First 5 LA is excited to announce that on November 14, 2019 our Board of Commissioners unanimously approved our 2020-2028 Strategic Plan.

The plan boldly articulates the goal of our “North Star” – that by 2028, all children in Los Angeles County will enter kindergarten ready to succeed in school and life.

First 5 LA is grateful to our Board, stakeholders, partners, grantees, community members and staff for their valued insights, feedback and commitment to our county’s young children and families.

The new plan will help guide and accelerate all that we do to make a tangible difference in the lives of children today and tomorrow and articulates our commitment to making systems more family-centered and child-focused. In short, the Strategic Plan will help make systems work better for all L.A. County families.

Through continued collaboration with partners who share our aspirations for children, we will strengthen families and children through policy and practice change and public-will building and bring a more intentional equity focus on the children and families facing disparities in outcomes and opportunities.
