Children 1st identifies children at risk for poor health and/or developmental outcomes from birth to age 5. They are linked to appropriate health, developmental and family-support services.
Children 1st was created within the Division of Public Health to help make sure that all of Georgia’s children stay in the best possible health. Children 1st works with public, private and community resources. Children 1st assists families by offering no-cost, in-home visits to arrange help for their needs. Participation is voluntary from beginning to end and parents may withdraw at any time.
