Rigorous research shows that Child First families become stronger and healthier. Results of a randomized, controlled trial demonstrated that at 12 month follow-up, Child First intervention families had strong positive outcomes, as compared to Usual Care control families:
Child First children were 68% less likely to have language problems and 42% less likely to have aggressive and defiant behaviors.
Child First mothers had 64% lower levels of depression and/or mental health problems.
Child First families were 39% less likely to be involved with child protective services, which was sustained at 33% at 3 year follow-up.
Child First families had a 98% increase in access to community services supports.
