KidsFirst's mission is to stop child abuse, in all its forms, through collaborative action, advocacy, policy and program development.
KidsFirst, a child abuse prevention agency operating three family resource centers in Roseville, Auburn, and Citrus Heights, is a private, non-profit, community-based organization established in 1989. Our vision is that all children live in a safe, healthy and nurturing home. KidsFirst functions as a single point of entry for information & referrals that raise prevention awareness and provide an array of family support programs and tools to strengthen families, empower parents, keep kids safe, and help families thrive. KidsFirst also trains professionals, government officials and lay persons regarding child abuse and neglect and its prevention. Furthermore, KidsFirst works closely with other community-based organizations and county agencies to ensure non-duplicative, effective service delivery to meet the needs of children, families and individuals in the community.
In FY2013, KidsFirst served over 5,000 children and parents/caregivers across the Sierra-Sacramento region. KidsFirst seeks out innovative programs which change lives, and invest only in those proven to strengthen and empower families in a healthy, positive, productive manner with the aim to keep children safe from harm. Center services include child and family counseling, healing therapy, postpartum depression counseling, parenting classes, in-home parent education, health insurance and CalFresh enrollment assistance, kinship caregiver (grandparents/relatives) support, after-school youth enrichment, mentoring, and tutoring, support groups, community workshops, parent leadership training, and information and referrals to low/no-cost resources.
