Our Impact

First 5 Contra Costa uses research and data to facilitate collective learning about the problems we face and the solutions to address them.

We approach our research with inquiry and acknowledge that data comes in many forms. We learn from population and administrative data, and we learn from the stories and experiences we hear from families, providers, and community members. We aim to use a variety of methods to advance inquiry, discovery and solution-seeking. 

Below are some key reports and data that inform our work:

Whole Child, Whole Family

Early Childhood Education

Early Intervention 

Strengthening Families
