Every parent is strong and supported.
Every child is thriving and resilient.
Every community benefits from the power of parents.
For more than 30 years, Families First has been a leader in providing parenting education across the Greater Boston area.
The organization was founded in 1988 with the goal of helping parents navigate the diverse challenges of raising children by providing research-based parenting education services. In 1998 Families First was incorporated as an independent Massachusetts nonprofit corporation.
From 2015-2018, we designed, developed, and launched a new program model called Power of Parenting. This new program is deepening our impact through a comprehensive longer-term approach, and we are already seeing stronger outcomes for families.
Last year, we engaged almost 500 parents and caregivers in our parenting education programs, benefiting more than 1,000 children. Read more about our program’s impact on these families.
