River Source Family Center

Because Kids Don't Come with Instructions

First Connections:



River Source Family Center's Parent Educators connect with parents and their new baby at the hospital. During the visit, we provide the new family with support, information, and referrals to community resources and services.

This program is a collaboration between River Source Family Center and St. Joseph's Birthing Center.
