About Us

For more than 135 years, Children & Families First has met the shifting needs of Delaware's children and their families. We use proven methods to prevent, intervene, and heal childhood adversity - helping families raise their children so they can flourish.

OUR MISSION:

Children & Families First helps children

facing adversity on their journey to

adulthood. We use proven methods to 

help families raise their children so they

can flourish.

 

OUR VISION:

Communities where children are

nurtured, healthy and safe; individuals

are valued; families are strong and

self-sufficient.

 

OUR CORE VALUES:

  • Accountability
  • Advocacy
  • Collaboration
  • Cultural Competency
  • Empowerment
  • Respect
  • Responsiveness

 

OUR APPROACH:

Children & Families First approaches

care through a trauma-informed lens

to help children reach their full potential. 

The trauma of abuse, neglect, and

tragedy weigh heavily in the lives of our

children and families. We ask not,

“What’s wrong with you?” but “What

HAPPENED to you?”

 

Children & Families First strengthens

Delaware families by delivering an

innovative and effective continuum of

community-based social services. We

know our communities and meet their

changing needs through replication of

evidence-based programs and services.
