Resources

connect families to information, experts, programs, services, social linkages and more in Los Angeles County to help improve the lives of parents and caregivers of children ages 0-5.

But while resources are essential for parenting, knowing what is available—and actually being able to gain access to resources—can sometimes be challenging. First 5 LA is here to help provide the tools to connect with the resources you and your family need, when you need them. The first step in getting information or help is as close as a phone call or click away.
