Welcome to First Connections
Our mission at First Connections is to equip parents of children birth through age eight with tools, practical strategies, and connections to other families and their communities to foster healthy parenting and guide you through the first years of the parenting journey.
First Connections serves families in the communities of Acton, Bedford, Boxborough, Carlisle, Concord, Harvard, Lincoln, Littleton, Maynard, Sudbury, and Westford.
We are able to offer our programs free to families thanks to funding from a Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care Coordinated Family and Community Engagement grant; the Community Chests of Concord-Carlisle, Maynard and Stow; the Acton-Boxborough United Way; and individual donations.
