I have been a member of Families First for over twenty years. They have always been kind, generous, patient, warm, caring, and definitely a safe place for me to flourish as a single parent. I could never ever even begin to repay how they have impacted and changed me and my family! I use the Health Center, the dentist, the Family Center and home visiting!
