Parent Resource Lending Library

Our Parent Programs

A home visitation program offered as support for parents that are experiencing challenges which may affect parent child relationships and the well-being and development of the child.

Kids First Parent Programs offer an opportunity for parents of children ages 0-6 to connect with others and to share in the joys and challenges of everyday parenting.  Our weekly sessions are fun and informative and focus on parenting, personal growth, and wellness.
