Kids First is a nationally recognized program designed to educate parents regarding issues children face when their family situation changes.
Kids First is a children’s rights organization providing critical, preventive services to strengthen families through education and advocacy. It was formed in 1994 as a grassroots organization to educate the public about the effects of divorce on children. The co-parenting program was developed out of a belief that divorcing parents would do a better job raising their children, following the termination of their marriage, if they understood what impact their actions had on their children and were taught alternatives to damaging behavior. The program has grown to meet the needs of grandparents, stepparents and parents that were never married.
