Emalea Pusey Warner, Friends School Class of 1870, and her husband Alfred, Friends Class of 1860, were founders of Associated Charities. Its mission was, “to help others help themselves.” Associated Charities became the Family Society, Family Service of Northern Delaware, Family Service Delaware, and finally, Children & Families First. Friends School continues to inspire students to act, as our mission statement says, “with a conscious responsibility to the good of all.” Best wishes from our family to yours.

Congratulations, Children & Families First, and thank you for your continuing service to our community. 302.576.2930
