Latest News:

Families First RI is a grassroots non-profit organization that pairs moms of infants with highly trained Volunteer Mentor Moms.

Some of our moms may be coping with the typical challenges associated with caring for an infant, and possibly older children. Some of these challenges may include balancing the expectations of work and family, financial stress, health issues, or single parenting. Other moms may be experiencing, or are at risk for, postpartum depression (PPD), or an anxiety disorder. Some of our moms who are pregnant may also feel depressed, anxious or isolated.

Listen to some moms talk about their experiences:
  • Brianne who has a baby with colic

  • Becky, a working mom

  • Johanna, who felt "a little down"

Meet some of our volunteers:
  • Tuie

  • Elaine

  • Ana

Matches: Moms with their volunteers:
  • Marge and Johanna

  • Joann and Felicia

  • Tania and Dawna

In addition, Families First offers monthly gatherings which include both a social and educational component. Our gatherings are open to our moms, their families as well as to their friends.
