Family First

Family-First-Banner

All children and teens should grow up in a safe, stable and secure family that supports their long-term well-being. Research shows that growing up in a family is essential for all kids, especially those who have experienced abuse or neglect.

The Family First Prevention Services Act (Family First) is a federal law that allows local child welfare agencies to use federal funding to pay for services that keep kids safe, growing up in their families.

In this introductory Web-based training, you will review the purpose of Family First, how it impacts service provision and placements, and much more.
