Welcome to First 5 Amador!

Our mission is to promote, support, and enhance the optimal development of Amador County's children from

zero to five years of age. Our Commission believes that broad community involvement is critical to the success

of this mission. With Proposition 10 funds we support projects that make sense locally based on identified needs and opportunities for children and families in Amador County.


Raising Readers Across Amador

First 5 Amador is launching a Literacy Campaign that will continue through June! The theme for our Campaign is based around “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” children’s book. Click HERE for more information!
