At First 5 Placer, we focus on the first 5 years of life.
We fund programs and services to ensure that children are nurtured, healthy, safe, learning, and developmentally reaching their potential. Research proves children who reach their full potential come from families that are strong and connected. Strong families are supported by communities that are caring and responsive.
