At First 5 Fresno County, we focus on the first 5 years of life. We want all children to have a strong foundation, so they can reach their full potential. First 5 Fresno County is committed to ensuring all children ages 0 to 5 are born healthy and raised in nurturing homes and communities.

We envision a future where all children and their families are healthy, loved, and nurtured.

We run after this vision by partnering with our community to create a seamless system of quality, accessible services that support the well-being of every child and family.

How do we work?

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 to 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.
