We support Health programs because children who receive high quality health services are more likely to be healthy, happy, and ready for kindergarten.
Earlier connections to servicesWe support efforts to make sure children are screened for developmental delays early on and connected with the services they need. Last year, 72% of children showed improvement after completing home visiting services through First 5-funded programs, and did not need further services.

More accessible health careWe support efforts to ensure low-income families can access health insurance and have a regular place to go for health care. Currently, 95% percent of children under six in Sonoma County have health insurance.

More accessible dental careWe increase children’s access to dental care. Our efforts helped over 2,100 children find a regular dentist, and 83% of returning children were cavity free at their next visit. Over 6,801 caregivers learned how to prevent tooth decay and support children’s healthy teeth.
