I have been in the nonprofit world for many years now. At the beginning of this year, I was honored to be invited to be a board member for this awesome organization. I remember the first board meeting and the people involved. I was so impressed with this amazing board and their Executive Director, Darcy Harris! The organization for forty years, has committed themselves to the most helpless in our society desperately needing mental health treatment and caring at the highest level! I do not know many organizations that do such an amazing job for all the right reasons! They are getting into their first building soon and the sky is the limits to what will be accomplished on behalf of the children and families they tirelessly serve!

Having served on the Board of Directors since 2009, I have seen how important Children First is to those in our community. There are so many people who unfortunately have been through traumatic situations that result in needing therapy to recover. The agency provides that therapy to those who simply may not be able to afford it on their own through wonderful counselors, who truly care about the people that they are serving. It is a wonderful agency that I am proud to be apart of.

I have been associated with Children First for many, many years as a board member. The agency is so diligent in its efforts to use its money wisely while providing individual and group counseling for both children and adults who are victims of a variety of hardships. Serving our clients and enabling them to not only overcome abuse, but thrive, is our foremost consideration. We do good, much needed work.

Children First makes it their mission to help victims become whole again after abuse. As a police officer with over 22 years of experience, I can tell you victims often need help far beyond what the justice system is equipped to provide. Children First has been helping people heal from some of the worst emotional trauma imaginable for over 40 years. Honored to be a part of this team!

I was once a client here. I was in a bad place in life. I had been physically sexually and emotionally abused my entire life. I went to children's first because it was either get help or die. I got help. I now am a college graduate, with a great career, a healthy relationship and accomplishing my dreams..children's first helped me learn self love..they help thousands of children and women just like me.

I was fortunate to be able to obtain all the hours I needed to become a Regustered Play Therapist at Children First Counseling Center. I did 335 hours of no or low cost counseling with a variety of children’s problems and ages while providing support and encouragement to their parents. It was a privilege to interact with counselors and counselors in training as I worked.
