Mission Statement

First Chance for Children provides early childhood programs and family resources to foster healthy outcomes for children and families in mid-Missouri.

Description

Services Overview: FC4C provides four primary services to over 1,000 families in Boone, Audrain, Howard, Cooper, Moniteau, Cole, Osage, Callaway and Randolph counties. They have seven staff and partner with over 20 school districts and local non-profit agencies.

Baby U: Baby U is a home visiting program supporting families with their specific parenting needs. Using the Nurturing Parenting and Parents as Teachers models, staff walk alongside families with children prenatally through the first semester of kindergarten providing resources, education, and support.

CRIBS: Safe C.R.I.B.S., which stands for Community Resources, Infant Beds, and Support, provides infants without a safe place to sleep a pack and play crib. The crib is delivered to the family and is followed by 5 additional home visits focusing on family wellbeing and child safety.

Baby Bags: Diapers, wipes, hygiene items, and other supplies needed to provide care and comfort to children delivered along with Child development and safety information. Items are available at the First Chance office or through one of our partner programs.
Lend and Learn Libraries: A free, fun place where parents can play with their children ages 0-5, interact with other parents, and ask trained staff questions about development or other concerns. Toys are available for check out so families can extend learning and play at home.
