Serving Our Community for over 30 Years
At Pasco Kids First, we believe our community is strengthened when our kids are supported and nurtured by the family with whom they live. Parents and others raising children need to have the tools needed to successfully guide the lives of those kids so that they can live happy, productive lives. We also strongly believe that children have an absolute right to grow up in a safe environment that meets at a minimum their basic needs for adequate food, safe shelter and positive adult support.
Our goal is to offer services that help to keep kids safe, help them to overcome the traumatic effects of abuse and neglect they may have suffered and to offer parents concrete supports, education and coaching to help them raise their children successfully.
Pasco Kids First Inc. is a private; non-profit organization. We promote the awareness of child abuse and provide leadership to deliver the needed services to help children. We are a community based team of caring professionals devoted to improving the well-being of children. Our team is actively engaged in the prevention, assessment and treatment of child abuse and neglect.
