          Serving the Children of the World



Over 40% of all Rosemead resident personal income, as is the case for all American citizens and residents, goes for taxes in various forms.  This includes taxes passed on indirectly by businesses.  These monies pay for services at four levels of government - Federal, State, County of Los Angeles and City of Rosemead. There are also various independent governmental agencies.  In addition various not-for-profit organizations address specific needs.  The  subject directory below is designed to familiarize Rosemead residents with available resources on the topics indicated.

Of particular interest for in-depth research are the "FirstGov" links, part of the online  reference resource that is maintained by the Federal government.  These links lead to both immediate informational and in many cases historical data on the topics covered.
