First 5 Los Angeles’ Best Start: Child and Family Well Being in Los Angeles County

March 1, 2006 / By Jenny Breyer

The Economic Roundtable produced county and sub-county information on Child and Family Health for First 5 Los Angeles, supporting their internal planning for what became the Best Start investment. The maps, slides and tables focus Resources_First5_Best_Start_img_01on the health and socioeconomic status of Los Angeles County’s children from birth through age three, as well as that of pregnant women (hence “P-3”). This work supports the planning and implementation process for First 5 LA’s new “Prenatal Through Three” focus area:

  • Engagement with pregnant mothers, newborns and their families in order to increase health screenings
  • Building blocks for strengthening the LA County’s capacity for raising healthier young children
  • Investing in “baby friendly” neighborhoods across the county
