Children First

NCJW Provides Opportunities to Put “Children First” 

Children First is Sarasota County’s exclusive provider of Early Head Start and Head Start programs, offering a comprehensive range of services to more than 600 underprivileged children and their families.  They provide full day preschool, infant and toddler care, nutritious meals and developmental screening for children ages birth to 5. Children First also offers parenting skill training and literacy classes, career training, and referrals for housing, food, medical and clothing. They even offer classes for the numerous fathers, grandparents and for grandparents raising children.

We are exploring opportunities for our members to volunteer at Children First. If you think you would be interested, please contact Joan Bour: or Rachel Sesser:, VPs of Community Service.
