Families and Community First Griswold

Children First Griswold is now Families and Community First Griswold! This name change reflects our work in our community for Griswold to be a positive, supportive community where families are healthy – physically, mentally, and fiscally. We’ll continue to build partnerships between families and communities to ensure that all of Griswold’s families’ basic needs are met, children have high-quality care and learning opportunities, and families are engaged in the community.

The mission of Families and Community First Griswold (FCFG) is to engage families, schools, and the community in improving life outcomes for children and families.
