Research shows that early identification and intervention in the social, emotional, physical and cognitive development of a young child will improve outcomes through their adulthood. That’s why our mission at First 5 Fresno County is to connect families to programs and services for children ages 0 to 5.
First 5 Fresno County is led by a Commission made up of seven individuals appointed by the County Board of Supervisors. Through a series of community meetings, the Commission allows the community to identify problems faced by children 0-5 and their families. The Commission then adopts a strategic plan that addresses these issues and funds programs and services that align with these plans.
