The First 5 Inyo Commission has decided to focus the majority of its allocation on funding Family Strengthening and Early Child Health programs as primary goals until 2020.
Under the goal area of Child Health:
-Northern Inyo Hospital was approved for a grant from 2015 to 2018 to support early birth and breastfeeding supports at their campus. Contracting is currently under way for both birthing classes and a breastfeeding support group that the hospital will offer.
-Early childhood educators, caregivers, health providers, and families are all welcome to participate in our free online Inyo Ages & Stages screening network that is being developed too.
Under the goal area of Family Strengthening:
-First 5 Inyo is also sponsoring the development of a Triple P (Positive Parenting Program) network to offer community wide parenting education. Agencies who want to participate in training and support are welcome to contact 873-6453.
-Early literacy is a primary predictor of a host of lifelong benefits, both for individual children and the communties they will contribute to in their lifetime.
