To accomplish desired results and to support more effective funding decisions, program planning, and policies, First 5 Ventura County adopted a results-based accountability (RBA) framework in its April 2000 strategic plan. This RBA framework uses regular, periodic and strategic data collection and analysis to inform a process of continuous improvement in order to provide the highest quality and most accessible services to young children and their families. This report represents the first annual evaluation report conducted by Center for Healthier Children, Families and Communities for First 5 Ventura County. The evaluation included as its scope the following three First 5 Ventura County funding initiatives for FY 2003-2004: (1) The Neighborhoods for Learning; (2) Child Health Projects; and (3) Family Strengthening Initiatives. The following are appended: (1) Demographic Data Survey; (2) Parent Survey; (3) Quality Survey; and (4) NfL System Change Survey. (Contains 75 figures, 37 tables, and 28 endnotes.) [This project was made possible through generous funding and support from the Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Development and First 5 Ventura County.]
