We believe race and income shouldn’t determine anyone’s future in Long Beach. In our community, everyone should be safe, connected, and healthy.

Best Start Central Long Beach (BSCLB) is an initiative funded by First 5 LA working to create the best possible community for young children and their families. BSCLB brings together parents, community organizations, institutions, and others in Long Beach to improve policies and resources to better support parents and create a community where children and families can thrive. BSCLB also provides skill-building and leadership training to help the group achieve its goals and ensure that children are safe, healthy, and ready to learn.
The purpose of the BSCLB community change funds is to advance the BSCLB community change agenda priorities that were identified by parents, caregivers, and organizations within the BSCLB network. These priorities seek to improve the lives of children prenatal to age five and their families in Long Beach through education, community building, and policy and systems change. Proposals for this opportunity will be voted on by the BSCLB community partnership in May and projects will be funded by June 2023. All project proposals must align with a minimum of one community change priority.
