The Orange County Partnership for Young Children is dedicated to ensuring that all young children arrive at school healthy and ready to succeed. Created in 1993, the Partnership is a community-based, nonprofit organization responsible for implementing the Smart Start program in Orange County. Smart Start funds are used to support early childhood activities, including quality child care, parent education, and preventive child health services.

We want to see the quality of life improved for all young children and their families. Every child deserves the support of a strong family and community, and a smart start in life. Together, we can make this a reality for every child in Orange County. Please join us!

There are many ways you can invest in the lives of Orange County’s children:
