“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.”

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.
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,
Leslie Newman

“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.”

Children & Families First
helps families develop
solutions to meet challenges
and embrace opportunities.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
as much as
you have
given me.”

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.”
