We provide care, education, and resources according to Luke 2:52: mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially. This is accomplished by providing developmentally appropriate activities, experiences, and guidance; and by providing a program of supportive Christian ministry and outreach to our First Steps families. We welcome and invite families to join us for special events and activities.
