About First Step

We support parents and families so that they can maximize their individual potentials as they progress throughout their lives. ~ Nita Lynn, Executive Director Emeritus

Mission, Vision, Values

Our mission is to promote the healthy development of children and families on the North Olympic Peninsula by building family strengths!

Our Impact

First Step Family Support Center believes that parents are their child’s first teacher as well as their first emotional “home.”

To support parents in their crucial role, we offer maternity support, parenting education classes, home-visiting programs, center-based activities, and access to vital health/safety information and supplies, so families have the advantage in raising healthy and happy children.

Research Driven

We seek to bring Evidence-Based and Research-Informed practices to our community. This means that parents, caregivers, and our community can feel confident in the strategies and programs that we provide.
