Healthy and Active Before 5 (HAB45) is a collaborative initiative in Contra Costa County. Our mission is to ensure that all families, especially those of color with limited resources, have opportunities to thrive. We advance health and racial equity, policy change, and coordinated collaborative strategies to improve the health and well-being of young children and their families.
HAB45’s core assets are its strong collaborative leadership and partnerships. Childhood health—and disparity in its distribution across the population—is a tremendously complex public health problem that requires strategic, collaborative efforts and a host of coordinated strategies to treat and prevent. HAB45 is at the center of quality collaboration in the county, by coordinating efforts to address the social determinants of early childhood health and build health equity.
