Families First is changing and growing! New York State has rolled out new Children and Family Treatment and Support Services, and Families First is pleased to be able to offer these to families in need. These include therapy services such as assessments and/or counseling, rehabilitation services such as skill building for children and families, and Family and Youth Peer Support Services. For a more detailed description of these services, please look under our Programs and Services Tab in the What We Do section.




Memorial Day is an incredibly special time in America’s history. This weekend, do more than barbecue. Take time to truly commemorate the meaning of the holiday and celebrate the servicemen and women who have given everything to this country.

Summer is the perfect time to show your kids that giving back can be fun. Choose an organization that has a shared interest among your family and ask about volunteer opportunities.

All work and no giving back makes for a dull workplace! Talk to your employer about already existing programs such as matching gifts or time off to volunteer.

Use the power you have to make the world a brighter, better place, and you’re sure to also experience some of that kindness. Together, we have the power to change the world!
