When & Where
First 5 LA
Champions for Our Children
First 5 LA is a unique child-advocacy organization created by California voters to invest tobacco tax revenues in programs for improving the lives of children in Los Angeles County, from prenatal through age 5.
Since 1998, we have invested more than $699 million in grants and programs to champion the health, education, and safety causes concerning young children and families.
Our vision is to create a future throughout our communities where all young children are born healthy and raised in a loving and nurturing environment so that they grow up healthy, are eager to learn, and reach their full potential.
First 5 LA’s mission is to make significant and measurable progress towards our vision by increasing the number of children from the prenatal stage through age 5 who are physically and emotionally healthy, safe, and ready to learn.
We accomplish our mission by partnering with communities and families in Los Angeles County to forward our goals in the areas of Early Learning, Health, and Safe Children and Families.
