Hello friends, partners and parents,
Below is a link to First 5 Orange County’s Annual Report, in which we’ve documented our collective achievements from the past fiscal year.
The 2020-2021 fiscal year has been both challenging and rewarding for First 5 Orange County as we work toward our shared vision that all children reach their full potential.
First 5 Orange County is advocating for Orange County’s zero to five population in every possible way. We’re working toward creating an equitable system for all families, removing the stigma that can be associated with receiving services, supporting parents and caregivers so they can be their family’s best advocate, and introducing business and policy leaders to the struggles of child care providers and parents.
Equity is a thread that weaves through all our work. First 5 Orange County’s staff and consultants are diving deeper into anti-racism, diversity, and inclusion, exploring ways we can help educate families about instilling resilience in young children and families, and supporting parent leaders in our communities.
But we aren’t doing this alone.
The dedication of our partners and collaboratives, working alongside our staff and consultants, is unmatched as we advocate for positive and lasting change for children and their families in Orange County.
Together, let’s continue this great work.
