Child First Programs

Child First helps families who are dealing with more than one type of stress at once — like not having enough income, violence in the home, or a mental health issue. Child First home visits can start any time during a child’s first 5 years, including during a parent’s pregnancy. Services usually continue for 6 to 12 months.
