The range of programs that the agency has developed, nurtured and put into place over the years are designed to meet needs that we have confronted as we have worked with children and their families.

Solutions That Strengthen Families

Families First fosters strong communities by delivering empowering and sustainable solutions for children and families. Our solutions focus on three impact areas necessary for child well-being and family self-sufficiency.

  • Child & Youth Permanency. Every child is entitled to live in a state of permanence--having one safe and stable home with unconditional adult love and support. That's why we provide adoption, foster care, reunification & group homes and other services to help ensure long-term stability for children and youth whose lives have been disrupted.
  • Family Sustainability & Empowerment. Housing is the most basic of needs and the most fundamental measure of self-sufficiency. That's why we collaborate with other agencies to deliver housing with support services and training that promote family self-sufficiency.
  • Healthy Families & Relationships. At one time or another, many families need additional support to confront life's challenges. That's why we offer programs and affordable counseling solutions to equip parents and children with critical skills for building and maintaining strong individual and family relationships.
