2017 Annual Report

“[My therapist] has helped me with different ways to respond to my son’s behaviors. Before I yelled - now I listen.” – FFT participant


Brain science teaches us that resilience helps us navigate the normal ups and down in life. I am happy to report that Children & Families First is resilient. We proved it in this past year! 2017 was a challenging year for both CFF and our state – filled with difficult budget negotiations, compromises, and ultimately, revenue reductions. As a member of the social sector serving children and families across the state, CFF was impacted by these cuts. Decreases in program revenue negatively impacted our staffing and service delivery. Like others who have less money to spend, we made some difficult choices. This included deciding to sell one of our facilities. However, by year’s end we were rebounding. We are proud that we are the recipient of a federal Regional Partnership Grant from the Children’s Bureau. Working in collaboration with both state and private agencies, we will be evaluating a new service model to help pregnant women with a substance abuse disorder to stay in treatment, have a healthy baby and be a good parent. The project, called Delaware HOPE, pairs a Nurse Home Visitor with a peer recovery coach with additional support from the Nurturing Parenting Program, a group-based intervention. As we participate in a local as well as cross-site evaluation, we hope to not only improve outcomes for the families we serve but also inform the field. In 2017, Children & Families First also became involved with Frontiers of Innovation, a project of the Harvard Center for the Developing Child. This initiative identifies key ingredients for helping children develop in healthy ways and achieve educational goals as well as supporting adults to become responsive caregivers who are financially stable. Our participation is an opportunity to learn from others sites in the project as well as review how we deliver services to Delaware children and families. We focus on making a difference for Delaware’s children and families. We measure outcomes in each program and review to identify areas for improvement. In addition, we continue to have strong feedback from our clients and stakeholders who value our work. 95% of stakeholders believe we build on clients’ strengths. 96% of stakeholders see our services as responsive to community needs. 98% of clients would recommend CFF to family and friends and would come back if they needed additional help in the future. 99% of clients report that our staff is knowledgeable in the service being provided. And we were once again voted a Top Workplace as reported in The News Journal. We are proud that our work is valued. We are grateful for your partnership and support. Together, we continue to put children and families first!!!
