First Steps is a no-cost program for San Diego parents-to-be and parents of infants and toddlers.
To refer a family into the program:
- Complete the REFERRAL FORM and send it to the region of the family’s residence. We can accept fax or secure email referrals.
- Call the office serving the family’s zip code.
First Steps partners with a network of support programs in San Diego County that works closely together to find the best fit for the family’s needs. We can determine if a family may benefit from a program more tailored to their unique need through our screening and assessment process.
We are happy to talk with a family over the phone, conduct an assessment in their home, and make a warm connect to one of our sister programs.
