Who We Are
Kids First Center has truly shown amazing results.
Through workshops, outreach programs and educational
forums, numerous children, parents and local professionals
have received training and other services devised
to help children and families deal with divorce and
separation. It is a pleasure to extend my most sincere
appreciation for all you have done."
