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.
