Systems Change

On June 5th, the residents of San Francisco answered the call of Supervisors Jane Kim and Norman Yee, who led a citizen initiative campaign for a family-friendlier city. First 5 is excited that Local Measure C has passed and that the promise of significant new resources for children and families has been fulfilled. Now the harder work begins, as the city moves to implement the will of the voters, tearing down barriers to the well-being of children and creating opportunities for them all to thrive.

As a City department whose sole purpose it is to improve the lives of children ages birth through five and their families, we stand ready to work with the Board of Supervisors, Mayor Breed, the Office of Early Care and Education and our community partners to ensure the implementation of Measure C has a significant, positive and lasting impact on the most vulnerable children and families.
