First Chance for Children relies on the generosity of our community to inspire greatness and support growth for our next generation. Together, we can create opportunity, change circumstances, and impact life long outcomes for families. You can make a difference by supporting First Chance for Children with a financial gift, donating items, volunteering, or attending an event.


Each year, First Chance for Children holds an array of events for the entire community targeted at celebrating early education, families, and the possibilities that are fostered in childhood. From family fun events to program fundraisers we have something for everyone. Join us at our next event and together we can make a difference.


We offer a variety of opportunities to give back to your community and support the families we serve. As a volunteer, you help us meet the needs of our community and your work contributes directly to our mission. Opportunities can be short term or on-going, and are tailored for you or your business's interest and commitment level.
