“Participating in the Resource Mothers program has changed me a whole lot! It has helped me with my self esteem, it has helped me with things I have forgotten since my last baby was born 13 years ago, it has helped me to make better decisions, and to speak up for myself so I can do what I need to do. I am so thankful for Resource Mothers and for Children & Families First.� -Veronica, Resource Mothers participant, with her 4-month-old daughter, Nevaeh cover photo by Sally DeWees

well as in Sussex County. This friendly-visitor program pairs volunteers with older adults in nursing or assisted living facilities. In April, Children & Families First held its rst Blue Bow event to mark the beginning of Child Abuse Prevention Month. Governor Markell and elected ocials joined us and other community advocates in front of Legislative Hall to raise awareness of the need to protect our children.

dearfriends hanks to your committed support and partnership, 2010 was an unforgettable year for Children & Families First. We hope you will share with us a sense of achievement as we reect on what you helped make possible.


We hit the ground running with the NurseFamily Partnership, our evidence-based home visiting program for low-income women pregnant with their rst child. Our nurses worked hard to build caseloads and help new moms – many of them teenagers – have healthy babies. We worked collaboratively with partners throughout the state to move towards our vision of a truly comprehensive system of care for pregnant women and new babies. Our Eastside Community Schools project at Bancroft, Elbert-Palmer and Stubbs Elementary Schools in Wilmington gained momentum. Thanks to increased local and federal funding, we were able to add an external evaluation and increase services to better make a dierence in the lives of children and families in some of Wilmington’s most challenging neighborhoods Our Resource Helpline was another area of growth. We continued to work with the Division of Aging to transform our ElderOnline and RespiteOnline referal services into the backbone of the state’s new Aging & Disability Resource Center known as ADRC. In 2010, our Helpline became the central point of contact in Delaware for questions about nutrition through a grant with Nemours. Recent census information conrms what we already know – Delaware’s population is aging. We responded by expanding our ElderBuddy program in New Castle County as

2010 also marked a year of meaningful recognition of our organization by both national colleagues and the local community. We were presented with the Agency of the Year Award from the Alliance for Children & Families. We were also chosen by Bank of America to receive a Neighborhood Excellence Award, which provided funding to support our Eastside Community Schools project. Finally, Children & Families First was honored to accept an Award of Excellence from the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce and the Small Business Alliance as part of the Marvin S. Gilman Superstars in Business. As we look ahead, we see many challenges, but even more opportunities. We are fortunate to have dedicated board members, sta, volunteers and advocates on our team who are willing to share their time, talents and nances – all in an eort to help us continue to forge change in our community. We thank you for your support. We’re pleased to share the photos and words of some of the people we served in 2010 – people whose lives were improved because of your trust and commitment to working together toward communities where children are nurtured and strong, individuals are valued and families are strong. Thank you.

Best regards,

“Having ARC has helped me so much! Since I don’t have a mom, I didn’t have anyone to talk to about problems or to take me to appointments. ARC has given me a safe and comfortable environment to take care of everything I need to take care of. I don’t know where I would be without ARC today, but I know their support has really kept the doors to my future open.” -Casey, age 18, ARC participant photo by Sally DeWees

OURMISSION HEALTHY BABIES Children & Families First helps families develop solutions to meet challenges and embrace opportunities.

OURVISION Communities where children are nurtured and safe, individuals are valued, and families are strong.

Healthy babies become healthy children. We connect pregnant women with health care and social services to make sure that their babies are born healthy and stay healthy. The Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is an evidence-based program using nurse home visitors to provide comprehensive services to low-income women pregnant for the rst time. The nurse follows the family through the child’s second birthday. NFP has a range of positive outcomes, including decreased child abuse and neglect. The Resource Mothers program works to decrease infant mortality by connecting at-risk pregnant women statewide with prenatal medical care and social services. Sta help prepare women for delivery and parenthood, and oer ongoing support and mentoring. Once the baby is born, Resource Mothers ensures that the family is connected to well-baby care.

EARLY CHILDHOOD The early years of a child’s life form the foundation of his or her future. Delaware Stars is the state’s quality-rating system for child care, working to improve early care and education. Relative Caregiver Training oers training to individuals who provide child care for their relatives, as required by the Delaware Division of Social Services for the Purchase of Care program. The training series covers topics such as safety, nutrition, health, language and literacy, child development and understanding children’s behavior. The Child and Adult Care Food Program assures that children in licensed child care programs receive nutritionally balanced meals. The Delaware After School Alliance is a public-private partnership working to ensure that afterschool programs meet the academic, social, cultural, and physical health needs of school-age children.


“Thank you for thinking of me in my time of need.”

The teen years can be dicult–young adults must navigate the uncharted waters of relationships, sexuality and more. For some teens, the challenges can be even more complex –mental health issues, truancy or even juvenile justice involvement. Youth ages 12 to 20 may participate in ARC (Adolescent Resource Center), either through educational sessions that meet during the school day or at our afterschool medical clinics. The goal is to help teens decrease risk-taking and promote healthy choices. Our Functional Family Therapy program is an evidence-based family counseling and case management intervention for youth between the ages of 11 and 18 and their families who are struggling with behavioral problems and family conict. Youth with mental health or behavioral issues benet from our Seaford House Residential & Day Treatment program.

POSITIVE PARENTING Being a parent is one of the world’s most important jobs, but also one of the toughest. Children & Families First oers assistance to parents and children to build skills and improve family communication. The Strengthening Families Program, a research-based family skills training series, and Delaware Cares, state-certied classes for divorcing parents, are designed to address the needs of vulnerable families and teach them positive, eective ways to interact. We provide Foster Care and Adoption services to help ensure the safety and well-being of vulnerable children. Children and youth of all ages who have experienced abuse, trauma or neglect are placed with loving, trained families who can provide the security they need.

FAMILY RESOURCES Strong families are the foundation of strong communities. Children & Families First is the lead partner in the Eastside Community Schools project, a public-private partnership targeting three Wilmington elementary schools with high rates of poverty and poor academic performance. ECS is working to ensure that children arrive at school healthy and ready to learn; families and community members are fully engaged as respected partners in the success of the children; and that the basic needs of children, their families, and neighbors are met. Our Resource Helpline provides a variety of free referral services to link parents and caregivers to the information they need to access child care, elder services, respite care options, and much more. In Sussex County, the Promoting Safe & Stable Families program connects families to essential services such as medical care, housing, employment and food.

THE WORKPLACE Work plays a signicant role in many of our lives. Children & Families First helps people nd meaningful employment in Kent and Sussex Counties through our Rise Up welfare-to-work program. We also work with employers around the nation to provide back-up dependent care coverage through the Just in Time Care® program, so that last-minute dependent care emergencies don’t need to cause missed work days.

OLDER ADULTS Americans are living longer, more productive lives. Nearly one in eight Americans is age 65 or older. The ElderBuddy Program matches trained volunteers with elders in need of companionship. Volunteers make a commitment to visit the elderly friend regularly and maintain an ongoing relationship with them. Grand Time O provides respite for grandparents or relatives who are raising other family members’ children. Caregivers are helped to nd and pay for short-term, occasional child care needs. The Delaware Kinship Navigator, provides a free one-stop-shop information and referral service for grandparents and other relatives who are currently raising related children.

“I hope to one day

give back to the community

as much as you have given me.”

How You Helped HEALTHY BABIES 91% of babies born to women in the Resource Mothers program attended their well-baby visits. 100% of babies born to moms in the Nurse-Family Partnership program were born at a healthy gestational “I want to age (37.5 weeks or more).

thank you EARLY CHILDHOOD for everything you gave me…I got everything I needed and more.”

The Child & Adult Care Food Program made it possible for child care centers and family child care homes to serve 1,248,411 healthy meals. Delaware Stars continued to improve child care quality, enrolling 41 new centers. 27 centers moved up one or more star levels.

SUPPORTING TEENS ARC Education helped 12,794 young adults increase their knowledge about puberty, contraception, and responsible decision-making. 100% of teens discharged from Seaford House went to a level or less-restrictive placement. 93% of teens who completed Functional Family Therapy treatment reported that their families had changed for the better.

POSITIVE PARENTING 229 children received care in the welcoming homes of our highly trained foster parents. 100% of special needs adoptions were nalized without disruptions 85% of families who finished the Strengthening Families Program demonstrated Large or Very Large improvement in their family interactions.

FAMILY RESOURCES 555 people served in the Promoting Safe & Stable Families program were connected to the community resources they needed. More than 2,685 child care, elder care, and respite care information requests were fullled through our free referral services. 775 children enrolled in the Eastside Community Schools program had access to case management, afterschool programs, and cultural enrichment opportunities.

THE WORKPLACE 78% of clients in the Rise Up Welfare-to-Work program achieved 48 consecutive weeks of employment.

SUPPORTING ELDERS 630 hours of companionship were provided to 35 local elders by ElderBuddy volunteers.

“I am

very grateful for what you have done for my children.�

“I’ve had a lot of blessings in my life and now that I am retired it gives me a chance to give back. We’ve developed quite a special friendship.” -Ted, ElderBuddy volunteer

“Being part of this program allowed me to meet my best friend ever. I’ve had friends in the past, but Ted is the best friend I’ve ever had.” –Dolores, ElderBuddy participant
