“The Children First Program was a lifeline to me at a very difficult time in my life. I am thankful for the thoroughness of Children First. My nurse brought educational videos, informative literature about babies and toddlers, taught me how to make my home safer for Madison, encouraged me to go back to college, helped me find needed resources and is an advocate for my daughter.”

“I will never forget my Children First nurse, Kathy. She was a down-to-earth, sweet-as-sugar lady who comfortably came into my home and expounded upon the wonders of child growth, development, nutrition, etc. For a new mom, this information was priceless. Moreover, having someone sit with you one-on-one on a weekly basis was absolutely essential. I could ask questions and get the information right then and there. I believe the Children First program is invaluable.”
“I loved the idea that a Registered Nurse would be coming to my home. I called to sign up and started the program, only to discover that it had so much more to offer than I could have ever imagined. The Program definitely helped me to improve my knowledge to be a mom, but also helped me to increase my desire to be a nurse… My C1 nurse Wendy was my model for what I wanted to be someday. She helped me improve not only the quality of life for my baby, but mine as well. She has all of my gratitude, respect, and I know that it was with her help, that I am where I’m at today. What a wonderful program to participate in, and now work for.”
