Best Starts for Kids 2018 in Review
To our community:
Best Starts for Kids wants all kids in King County to be happy, healthy, safe and thriving. What does it look like to think less about intervention and the negative things we want to avoid, and think more about promoting the good things we want for our children? With a strong emphasis on prevention and promotion, Best Starts for Kids plans to find out.
2018 was year three of the six year Best Starts for Kids levy and implementation is in full swing. Together, with 228 community partners, we are building on the strengths of families and communities so that babies are born healthy, children thrive and establish a strong foundation for life, and young people grow into happy, healthy adults.
We could not do this work without our incredible community partners. Thank you to everyone who has given your time to Best Starts for Kids, provided input, and challenged us to push boundaries for the betterment of our communities. Best Starts prioritizes building strong, trusting relationships with our partners, with community feedback guiding every part of Best Starts for Kids.
