The Family Center Launch
HELP US MEET OUR FUNDRAISING GOAL TO QUALIFY FOR GRANTS UP TO $100,000
First Start Partnerships for Children and Families, in collaboration with the Hope from the Start task force, has a vision for thriving families and a stronger community. We are creating The Family Center to be a gathering place for all Franklin County families with children, prenatal to age 8. Families with young children need local, supportive, positive, healthy relationships. They need to know they are not alone in the difficult job of raising children. They need to understand the normalcy of stress and trauma, and strategies for building resilience in themselves and their children.
First Start Partnerships for Children and Families is committed to serving our children and families with the highest quality care and education to develop each person to their fullest potential. Our program is rated at the highest quality level possible in Pennsylvania – Keystone STARS FOUR, and we continuously strive to improve what we do. By 2023, our goal is to be nationally accredited, as well as state recognized, by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
We partner with our families, schools, and communities to ensure that each child arrives ready for kindergarten.
To ensure school readiness by providing high quality education and strong foundations for social, emotional and physical development.
To create stronger, healthier families by ensuring access to community resources, increasing positive parenting practices and providing opportunities for personal growth.
To build more vibrant communities through advocacy, education, collaboration, and commitment to building stronger families.
