Keeping Families Together
Child abuse and neglect devastate families and entire communities. The cost comes in both human and financial terms. The value of preventing it is priceless. Families First does just that - we provide programs aimed at helping families receive services they need to keep their children with them in safe, nurturing homes and out of the child welfare system. The cost savings is enormous in terms of taxpayer costs for dependency and delinquency services, school failure, future mental and physical health programs and loss of productivity as abused children become adults.
By helping parents and others with services that address their needs - parenting skills and child development information, legal and other community services for grandparents and others raising a loved one's child, and therapeutic services, we help end cycles of abuse.
