First 5 LA Strategic Plan

The 2020-2028 Strategic Plan articulates our commitment to making systems more family-centered and child-focused; in short, to help make systems work better for all families of Los Angeles County. The Strategic Plan builds on First 5 LA’s focus on systems change and our work with many partners to ensure that by 2028 — all children in Los Angeles County will enter kindergarten ready to succeed in school and life — a bold goal we refer to as First 5 LA’s “North Star.”
