Welcome to our Report
Letter from Leadership
There is nothing like the sparkle in a child’s eye. Just one smile and spontaneous giggle from them can pierce your heart and change your outlook. They are amazing to watch.
Children are always on the move and so is First 5 Stanislaus. 2018 was an amazing journey as we charted a new course for the future of children and families in Stanislaus County.
We engaged a highly collaborative community process that ended the year with an updated strategic direction for First 5 Stanislaus and a new five-year strategic plan. Our mission continues to be powerful, as we look to be a catalyst to give children and families the best start. We will be unfolding our new plan throughout 2019 and over the next several years.
While we spent tremendous energy on planning in 2018, the work of First 5 continued to be strong and reach families every day through our amazing partnerships.
This year’s report features interviews with our partners and friends from the Parent Resource Center. Come and take a look at the powerful work done in our community during 2018 and see how it has changed lives. We’re MOVING WITH PURPOSE.
