NEWS FROM KIDS FIRST CENTER  |   Oct. 2016

Greetings Friends & Supporters,

This month is all about kids at Kids First Center! Our Fall Conference  spe aker is going to teach us about keeping kids out of the middle of parental conflict, and our  Children's Support Groups a re in full swing again. The Kids First Center Support Groups for Children allow them to share their thoughts and feelings in a neutral place, without any fear of judgment from the adults around them. We know that children also need support during family separation and divorce, and being around other children in a similar situation can often help to normalize their family experience. Each group is run by one of our experienced facilitators who is ready to share a whole lot of child-centered goodness with each child!  Feel free to reach out if you know a child that could use some support! Thank you! 


Best,

Nici Carbone
Executive Director
