The Children and Families Commission of Orange County has programs and instructional materials to help parents of children ages birth through five.
The organization was created as a result of proposition 10, the California Children and Families Act of 1998, which added a 50 cent sales tax on tobacco products sold in our state. It required the funds to be used to support education, health and child development programs from the prenatal stage through age five.
