What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

First Steps

First Steps program offers valuable information for expectant and new parents concerning the critical first months of a newborn’s life. Families receive free information about resources in their community as well as the opportunity to get support from our home visiting program, Healthy Families.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers
Women and girls

This program is a nationally credentialed, evidenced-based, prevention program based on an in-home visitation model. Healthy Families focuses on providing support for at-risk families with children aged 0 to 5. We engage these families prenatally or within the first two years of a child's life using the Healthy Families "Growing Great Kids” curriculum. A Family Support Worker visits the home weekly and models appropriate mother/child behavior, promotes proper nutrition, breastfeeding, bonding, safe sleep, literacy and teaches families healthy growth and development.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers
Women and girls

This program is for grandparents, legal guardians and kinship placements who are raising their grandchildren or other minor chidlren. We use an evidence-based curriculum (Triple P) in both a support group setting as well as a home visiting program. We help these families navigate the legalities associated with custody and/or adoption; tutoring for children who are behind grade level and counseling for both the caregiver and the child as appropriate.

Population(s) Served
Seniors
Children and youth

  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
