Children First Parents' Day Celebration

Children First Parents' Day Celebration

TULSA, OK – [April 10, 2013] – Children of parents who have completed the Tulsa Health Department’s Children First program will participate in a special graduation ceremony during Parents’ Day on Friday, April 12 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Asbury United Methodist Church.

Children First is a family-centered program that utilizes home visits by registered nurses to help first-time mothers and their families prepare for parenthood through home visits, education and health assessments. Mothers receive information on promoting a healthy, safe lifestyle for their family while gaining a greater understanding of the types of help and resources available to them in the community. Regular home visits occur until the child is two years old and graduates out of the program.

“Parents’ Day is a special day for our Children First families,” said Cathy Sullivan, Children First program manager. “This is a time to celebrate the accomplishments of both the children and the parents who participate in the program.”

State legislators and health officials have been invited to attend the event which will include a light lunch. Local members of the media are invited to attend and can pre-arrange to interview a Children First family.
