Welcome to Family First Center of Lake County, where families come first and community support makes all the difference. Our journey began with a simple yet powerful vision: to create a safe haven where families facing challenges could find refuge, support, and the resources they need to thrive.

As a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening family bonds and promoting well-being, we have been on a mission to empower families in our community for over a decade. Every day, we witness the transformative impact of our programs and services on the lives of those we serve.

From providing counseling and support groups to offering educational workshops and empowerment programs, we are committed to nurturing strong, resilient families that can weather any storm. At Family First Center, we believe that every family member deserves to feel valued, supported, and empowered to reach their full potential.

Through the generosity of our supporters and the dedication of our staff and volunteers, we have been able to make a tangible difference in the lives of countless families in Lake County. Together, we have created a community where families feel connected, supported, and uplifted—a community where no one is left behind.

Join us in our mission to build a brighter future for families in need. Together, we can continue to empower families, strengthen communities, and create a legacy of love and support that will endure for generations to come.
