Countywide Prevention Metrics:
The goal of the Countywide Prevention Plan is for every child to be healthy, thriving in a strong family, and supported by a nurturing community. To achieve this goal, the Los Angeles County Office Child Protection and Chief Information Office, with input and guidance from County department partners and stakeholders, have identified a set of impact indicators to serve as guidelines for strategic and operational improvements in the County's broad-based prevention programming and policies. The indicators identified in this preliminary release of the CPM are a starting point for common prevention-related measures and will evolve over time.

First 5 LA is an independent public agency that works to support the safe and healthy development of young children so that by 2028, all children in L.A.

County.
