Community Impact


First 5 Yolo leads efforts to champion prevention and early intervention for children and families, to build partnerships to improve systems of care, and to invest in proven programs and services. Since the inception of Proposition 10 in 1998, over $39 million has been invested in Yolo County with the understanding that the greatest opportunity to improve a child’s life occurs prenatally through the first five years of life.

First 5 Yolo’s 2019-2021 Strategic Plan is the road map to ensure that First 5 Yolo funds initiatives that provide a range of direct service programs and systems change efforts that benefit children ages 0-5 and their families. It was built with community input from parents, providers and stakeholders and is intended to address the unique child health and development, family support and systems change needs of Yolo County.
