In January of 2019, community partners from multiple agencies agreed to work together to compile a “data snapshot” of some of the most pressing issues affecting Lake County’s children. The goal of this document is to bring greater awareness to these issues and the ways they are impacting the next generation and to raise prevention as a priority issue in our community. The areas covered in this report include: early prenatal care, fetal alcohol and drug exposure, youth substance use, poverty, education, child safety and security, and delinquent activity of youth. Additional data on a wide range of issues affecting children, and our community, can be found at: HopeRisingLC.org, ChildrenNow.org, KidsData.org, Census.gov, CDE.ca.gov, and DOF.ca.gov.
