First3Years' Response Efforts
Take a look into what First3Years has been doing in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic:
We are still serving infants, toddlers, and their families.
Our in-person interactions have been suspended but we are working by email, telephone, and the internet to remain connected and give resources to those who need it. We are providing free online educational courses for professionals to earn continuing education credits and for parents to strengthen their knowledge with up to date research.   Since their launch, we've had nearly 7,000 people complete these trainings.   Each Safe Babies child is continuing to receive the developmental care they need   through in person   and online visits and our coordinators   are going above and beyond to offer additional support.   We're also providing training to parents and foster families virtually. We continue to update our website and our   social media platforms with new information and resources.  
We are continually watching for official updates.
  Whether it is Governor Abbott, our city officials, or the CDC, we are staying on top of the information coming to us and abiding by their suggestions and orders. Once we receive the information, our staff is evaluating what it means for those we serve, staff, and the community and creating or adjusting plans as quickly possible.
If you are looking for a way you can help First3Years   right now , please make an   online gift   today, the first $10,000 in donations will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to Sara and Gary Ahr.
