First 5 Orange County has a commitment and mandate to improve outcomes for Orange County’s children prenatal through age five. To respond to that mandate and to remain accountable to the community, we have developed a strategic approach that identifies what we want to achieve, how we will achieve it, and how we will measure our progress. Specifically, the strategic framework contains:
- three broad, long-term goals (the outcomes we want to see in the community),
- nine population-level headline objectives (how we will measure progress on our goals and remain accountable to the community),
- five strategic directions (what we will do to achieve our goals), and
- fifteen agency- or system-level implementation objectives (how we will measure our successful implementation of our strategies).
