About This County Commission

Located in northeastern California, Lassen County is a rural, sparsely populated, but geographically large county in California.  Lassen County is home to almost 35,000 residents. First 5 Lassen County Children and Families Commission has identified the following four goals in its work serving young children and their families in the County:

Improved Child Development: Every child prenatal through 5 will reach his or her developmental potential and be ready for school.
  • 100% children served will progress along a continuum toward school readiness
  • 50% of parents who participate in trainings will implement skill or strategy learned
Improved Family Functioning: Families and other caregivers of children prenatal through 5 will provide optimal parenting and a healthy environment.
  • 60% of parents served will demonstrate increased positive behaviors, knowledge and practices in parenting skills and healthy lifestyles
  • 100% of Lassen County parents (within the State Commission’s revised New Parent Kit Guidelines) of newborns will be offered a New Parent Kit
Improved Child Health:  Healthy Children.
  • 80% of families served by First 5 programs will increase utilization of child physical and emotional health services
Improved Systems of Care: Encourage and participate in comprehensive, coordinated systems of care for children prenatal through 5 that maximize the efficient use of resources.
  • Shared visions among public and private partners are in place that remove access barriers and result in increased participation
