Families 1st Partnership Q and A
Families 1st Partnership is a backbone organization for frontline agencies that work with families. Families 1st works to ensure that coaches have the support they need to best assist families. Through coaching there is access to budgeting classes, information videos on life skills, single parentings, behavioral health issues, etc. for individuals or families working with F1P. Financial assistance may also be available to families or individuals working with a coach. Families 1st Partnership currently offers assistance in Lincoln, Keith, Arthur, Perkins, chase, Dundy, Hitchcock, Hayes, Frontier, Furnas & Red Willow counties. We are continually looking to expand into other counties to assist families in need.
Once the application is complete participants will be contacted within 48 hours. Once a referral is made to a coach, the coach will contact them within 1 week (time frame depends on the specific coach).
Our primary assistance is for Rent and Utilities. In some cases we may also be able to assist with vehicle repairs, purchasing a drivers license or birth certificate, etc.
