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.

Parenting Tips

Salem Mom and Daughter

Access hundreds of research-based, field-tested parenting tips:

  • Help children develop the skills they need to stay true to their values. It is not enough to “just say no.” Children need concrete strategies for resisting societal pressures.
     
  • Giving children the language and actions necessary to make sensible choices is challenging yet imperative.
     
  • Role Model: Children learn so much from watching their parents. A child's parents are their first and best teachers.
