Every year of a child’s life is precious, but the first 5 years are our greatest opportunity to inspire, nurture, and prepare them to reach their potential.
First 5 San Francisco is committed to creating a system that ensures every child can thrive and learn. We provide public investment, expertise, and leadership to put resources in the hands of those who care for our city’s children.
We are a San Francisco City and County Department that designs, implements, and funds solutions to ensure the health, well-being and education of young children and their families. We seek to create lasting change in our city through a culture of passion, excellence, and strong partnership.
Early educators like Ling Huang can change the trajectory for the children in their care.
By investing in the people who care for children and families and the systems that support them, our impact is increased exponentially.
