Since 1988, Families First has offered free parenting education to moms and dads in our community who are struggling with homelessness, poverty, and violence. Parents who attend our workshops are supported and empowered to be the best parents they can be for their children.

Raising happy and healthy children can be a lot of work, and Families First believes that all parents can benefit from support, especially parents dealing with difficult situations like poverty, violence and homelessness. Our parenting workshops are led by experienced educators and include information on healthy child development, how to cope with stress, and exercises to practice communication and play, all of which, in turn, help parents build healthier relationships with their kids.
