Mission of Healthy Little Smiles: To connect with the community and support the healthy development of early childhood by increasing access to oral health prevention programs. The undertaking includes future health care providers’ professional development by participation in serving within the community partnerships.

First Things First was created by voters to expand the early education, health and family support programs that help children arrive at school ready to succeed. Voters set aside a portion of tobacco revenues for this purpose.  Decisions about which specific programs are funded in each community are made b volunteer regional councils who know best what children in their area need.
