Illuminating a path for children and their families. The Lighthouse for Children serves as a permanent hub of activities and supports for the community through diverse, comprehensive, and multifaceted programming.

First 5 Fresno County’s 2013-2020 Strategic Plan guides efforts and investments through the year 2020. A cornerstone piece of this plan is the “Lighthouse for Children” facility.

This facility has been named “Lighthouse for Children” because it serves as a beacon of hope for the children in our community. The facility is a place where families and professionals working with children can come to share ideas and find sustainable solutions by encouraging collaboration in the community around children’s issues.

Through this project, First 5 Fresno County brings partners together to collaboratively find solutions to address unmet needs, advocate on behalf of children and be a community voice for children.
