Mission & Vision
First 5 Siskiyou invests in the future of young children and their families in Siskiyou County with the goal of promoting the health and well-being of young children during their most critical years of development, from the prenatal stage through age five.
Our vision is to support parents of young children in nurturing healthy development, love of learning, and to be able to enter school as active learners.
is outlined in these areas:
First 5 Siskiyou Children and Families Commission funding is from revenue from the voter approved Proposition 10, passed in 1998, adding a tax on cigarettes and other tobacco products to improve services and resources for children in the most critical time in their lives – the first 5 years.
