First 5 LA funds Best Start Metro LA’s newsletter Acción Comunitaria to provide parents and residents in the community a place to share their personal stories and experiences of Best Start. All stories are written by community members and designed to inspire others to get involved. In this issue we present stories written by Communications Task Force
members Luz Hernández and Veronica Corona.

This newsletter is distributed to
community-based organizations and the nearly 500 members that currently
make up the six Neighborhood Leadership Groups organized and supported
by Best Start Metro LA. The Best Start Metro LA writing workgroup was featured in Hoy Los Angeles, the LA Times’ Spanish language newspaper.

Best Start
is an investment of First 5 LA, a leading early childhood advocate
working in partnership with others to strengthen families, communities,
and systems of services and supports so that all children in L.A. County
enter kindergarten ready to succeed in school and life. Best Start
brings together parents and caregivers, residents, organizations,
businesses and government institutions to decide how to create the best
possible community for children and their families. Best Start then provides the skills-building and leadership training to help them achieve their goals.
