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.
