HOW TO REFER A FAMILY TO THE FIRST STEPS PROGRAM
First Steps enrolls families at any point during their pregnancy and regardless of the number of children in the family. The program accepts referrals prenatally.
For more information about the project in your specific region, please contact the regional leadership organizations.
If you have a family you would like to refer into the First Steps program:
- Identify the family’s region of residence on the chart to the right.
- Determine if First Steps is the agency which can best meet the family’s needs, by using the regional Referral Pathway tool
- If First Steps is the best fit for the family, complete the REFERRAL FORM and fax the completed form to the region of the family’s residence.
- If there are any questions, please call the office serving the family’s zipcode.
