First Steps

Offered by Advocates for Children, the First Steps program is a free service which allows trained volunteers to provide support, parenting information, referrals and services to any new mother. Volunteers initially visit new moms at Cartersville Medical Center, and then maintain contact with the parent for the next three months.

First Steps services include providing families with a localized community resource guide, referrals to relevant resources and age-appropriate information in at least the following categories:

  • • Maternal Health
  • • Newborn/Child Health
  • • Home and Child Safety
  • • Community and Family Safety
  • • School Readiness
  • • Family Economic Self-sufficiency
