What Client's Say

Arkansas Families First has worked very closely and diligently this school year to find effective, creative solutions addressing the needs of our school community.

During the fall of 2015, Dr. Benton and his team met with our parents, faculty, and students supporting and strategically walking us through a difficult situation within our school. Throughout scheduled visits, they met with the various age groups teaching safety and a non-fear based abuse prevention program through stories and activities. The programs explored safety rules, being the boss of their bodies, boundaries, listening to your gut and how to seek help if needed. Not only were are students engaged and comfortable, our teachers and parents were very pleased with the gentle approach about important topics.

We love and respect our relationship with AR Families First. They have been very professional and personal in their service to our school. Dr. Benton and Mrs. Von Storch have continued to touch base with our school administrators about facilitating future programs. We highly endorse and recommend AR Families First.
