Who We Are

First Home Care offers a continuum of services that support, train, advise, educate, nurture and treat children at risk, adults, and their families, through programs in Virginia and in collaboration with Foundations for Home and Community in the surrounding Maryland communities.

We believe that individuals are best served and achieve the most positive outcomes if they remain in communities near their families and natural support systems. We help individuals and their families develop concrete skills that sustain them in their efforts to become productive members of society. We believe all individuals are capable of developing the necessary skills to achieve their goals and we help them succeed in this endeavor.

Our services reduce the need for more costly and restrictive levels of care and placements, and target those children, adults, and families deemed “hard to serve” due to multiple system involvement or those with a history of multiple past treatment failures requiring access to an array of mental health services and supports. We have extensive experience and expertise in designing and delivering services within the child welfare, student court, mental health, and education arenas. Our focus is on strengthening and preserving family unity through prevention and solution-based services.

Our programs enable individuals to receive the care they need in their homes and communities, and reduce the need for hospitalization and out-of-community placement. Using strength-based and family focused approaches, we develop programs which build on and improve the successes of the individuals we serve. Our clinical and case management staff members utilize strength-based and skill-building approaches to engage children and adults to support their successes at home, in school and in the community.
