For 28 years, Families First has been providing a hand up to families so they can find their way back to self-sufficiency and provide safe, loving homes for their children. Services are directed toward family strengthening, health, behavioral health, and housing.
Many of the 40,000 children and families served through our prevention and early intervention services since 1990 have returned to being contributing, self-sustaining members of our communities – saving taxpayers millions in later need for dependency and criminal justice services, special education, homeless services, and financial aid.
Healthy Families Florida is preventing child abuse, not intervening after it has occurred.
Healthy Families is a nationally accredited, voluntary, parent support and coaching program for expectant parents and parents of newborns experiencing stressful life situations that could interfere with their abilities to be good, nurturing parents.
