BEST START focuses on making families stronger, building on current work and bringing much-needed resources to the community. You know your community, and that’s why your ideas and support are so important in transforming your neighborhood into a Best Start community. Working together, Best Start partners will create communities where all young children have:
• Safe places to play
• Improved health and family services
• Better access to affordable healthy food
Do you have friends, family and colleagues who would be interested in joining Best Start? Invite them to attend a meeting with you or encourage them to sign up at BestStartLA.org.

Champions for Our Children
First 5 LA is a leading early childhood advocate working collaboratively across L.A. County. We were created in 1998 to invest L.A. County’s allocation of funds from California’s Proposition 10 tobacco tax. Since then, First 5 LA has invested more than $1.2 billion in efforts aimed at providing the best start for children from prenatal to age 5 and their families.
First 5 LA, in partnership with others, strengthens families, communities, and systems of services and supports so all children in L.A. County enter kindergarten ready to succeed in school and life.
