  About Us

Funded by the passage of Prop. 10 in 1998, First 5 San Benito distributes Prop. 10 tax revenues to benefit San Benito County children, prenatal to age five and their families.  Revenue is distributed by awarding grants and funding other initiatives.

Our Vision

San Benito County children and their families will reside in a safe, healthy and nurturing environment, enjoy equal access to resources and realize their unique potential with a strong sense of responsibility to self and community.  

Our Mission

The First 5 San Benito Children and Families Commission will engage in collaborative and county wide planning and quality assurance efforts to provide children, prenatal to five years of age, with a comprehensive, integrated system of early childhood development services.  These efforts will prepare children to enter school in good health, emotionally well developed and ready and able to learn.



A special thanks to the David and Lucile Packard foundation for their generous support of First 5 San Benito. Their grants help ensure that First 5 San Benito can continue to provide high quality services to children 0 to 5 years of age and their families in San Benito County.
