We recognize that our level of impact increases significantly when we join together with partners to support young children experiencing optimal development, good health, and entering school ready to learn. We work with First 5 Shasta grantees, community collaboratives, and a variety of community partners to fund and/or implement programs and activities that help us achieve the Pathway Goals and Initiatives identified in our Strategic Plan.
In addition to our financial investment in early childhood, we believe collaborating with other agencies and groups is essential to expanding community commitment to young children. First 5 Shasta contributes to collaborative efforts by convening groups to address issues relevant to children and families, by participating in established collaboratives, and by providing financial support as appropriate. Simply put, working together we can achieve so much more!
