Best Start brings out the best in our children by bringing out the best in our communities. Our goals are that children are born healthy, maintain a healthy weight, are safe from abuse and neglect and are ready to enter kindergarten. http://beststartla.org
We focus efforts on young children between pregnancy and preschool because research shows that more than 90 percent of brain development occurs in the first few years of life. That means we're building solid foundations for our children while making our communities stronger.
Current Best Start communities include:
Central Long Beach Metro Los Angeles Compton/ East Compton East LA El Monte / S. El Monte Lancaster Pacoima Palmdale Panorama City South LA / Broadway - Manchester South LA / West Athens Southeast LA County Watts / Willowbrook Wilmington
