About Kids First Center

The Kids First Center is a safe place for moms and dads to learn how to peacefully co-parent and how to keep children from the middle of adult disputes. Raising healthy, happy, and well-adjusted children is possible even when parents are not together.

Through educational programming for parents, children, and allies, the Kids First Center strives to support families during difficult transitions and teach resilience skills that last a lifetime.

Our Impact

The Kids First Center is building a community of parents, caregivers, and allies who practice and support effective co-parenting to alleviate childhood suffering. Since bringing programs online in 2020, the community grows -- one program, one parent, one child, and one new location at a time.
