What We Do

Families First provides parenting workshop series exclusively to clients of our partner organizations: schools, early education centers, and social service organizations around the Greater Boston and Brockton area. We target low-income parents, who have limited access to parenting resources.

Our workshops are affordable for organizations and free for the 1,500 parents we support each year. To help our school partners engage and support families, we provide our FUSE capacity-building services.

Parenting Tips

Salem Mom and Daughter

Access hundreds of research-based, field-tested parenting tips:

  • Encourage children to assume responsibilities in school and in the community. Helping others gives children a chance to focus on more than their own needs and desires.
  • Teach your child empathy, providing opportunities for him/her to think about what others are feeling.
  • Let your child see you demonstrating empathy and compassion for others.
