First Chance for Children

What We Do

Our many programs support families and strengthen their ability to cope with the everyday stress of raising children. From receiving a crib and diapers, to parent education and group events, our children are ready for school, ready for life.

Why We're Great

Our programs greatly reduce our families' risk of SIDS, instances of child abuse and neglect, and maternal depression, while increasing family protective factors, parental knowledge, community belonging, and kindergarten readiness.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

FC4C creates a stronger, healthier, and safer community by investing in our families early, especially those facing challenges early on. Our evidence-based programs with proven outcomes make a smart investment, creating a better Columbia.
