Children & Families First

For 140 years Children & Families First has made our name our promise. A non-profit human services agency serving children and families throughout Delaware we offer a comprehensive continuum of trauma-responsive, culturally sensitive, child-centered and family focused services that align with our framework: helping caregivers prevent adverse childhood experiences, intervening when families are struggling, and providing supports to heal from adversity.

Our programs are evidence-based and incorporate multi-generation, whole family, and community-wide supports and services rooted in the research put forth by the Harvard Center on the Developing Child. We offer immediate and free access, providing services where they are most appropriate and accessible: through confidential telehealth, and in client homes, schools, community sites, and CFF's statewide offices.
