Who We Are

Our Vision 

Contra Costa’s young children will be healthy, ready to learn, and supported in safe, nurturing families and communities. 

For more than two decades, First 5 Contra Costa has worked to support every child in our county in reaching their full potential by focusing on their most critical years of development—prenatal to age 5. We focus on prevention, center our work around equity, and play many roles to reach our vision: funder, convener, and advocate.
