Families First

Strong Families, Thriving Children

Based in The Dalles, Families First provides support to families with young children living in Wasco County.

Our core program is Healthy Start, which provides a “Welcome Baby Visit” to all first-time parents and weekly home visits to new families experiencing extra stress.

In addition to our Healthy Start home visiting program, we operate the Family Support and Connections program for low-income families in a five-county area. Our “Children’s Closet” is open to any families that would like to either donate or take gently used baby clothing, toys and baby equipment.

Our vision is a supportive community with healthy, thriving children raised in strong, nurturing families, a community where all children and families are safe, healthy and valued. We believe that every child and every family deserves a chance to build a good life. In addition to the Families First Healthy Start home visiting program, we operate the Family Support and Connections program for low-income families in a five-county area.
