Target Populations

Who We Serve

Child First serves children and their families with the following characteristics:

Age of child: Prenatal through five years at the onset of services

Target concerns:

  • Children with emotional/behavioral or developmental/learning problems
  • Families with multiple challenges (such as extreme poverty, maternal depression, domestic violence, substance use, homelessness, abuse and neglect, incarceration, and isolation)

Eligibility: There are no exclusions other than the specific geographic area served by Child First. Families needing less intensive intervention may be triaged to other services.

Cost: Families are served without regard to insurance coverage, ability to pay, or legal status. A sliding payment scale may be established within a Child First program. When available, medicaid or other insurance may be billed by the Child First program.
