As stewards of funding dedicated to young children, First 5 Shasta aims to invest in efforts that will have the most effective and positive impact on children and our community. Five Pathway Goals selected from the adopted strategic framework “Pathway to Children Ready for School and Succeeding at Third Grade” are used to guide our investment in early childhood. From a healthy pregnancy to a child’s eager entry into kindergarten, we’re making strategic and innovative use of all First 5 Shasta resources to make a lasting difference in the lives of children.
