To provide for the optimal physical, emotional and intellectual growth of the young children of Merced County, the Commission will:
  • Identify the issues and service needs relating to the early development of children from the prenatal stage to age five,
  • Develop a comprehensive plan of how those issues and needs can be addressed while acknowledging and supporting the strength of families and the cultural diversity of the community, and
  • Facilitate, through funding priorities and disbursements of Proposition 10 funds, the creation, implementation or enhancement of integrated and collaborative preventative services and programs which will result, in measurable terms, in the optimal early development and future potential of our children.
