Children First is an organization that encompasses the values and compassion needed to reach some of our most underserved community members. We not only see the needs of East Bakersfield, but we are deeply connected through our own experiences, which enables our board to proceed with heart and understanding. Each of us wants to help unlock positive outcomes for children, individuals and families in East Bakersfield and beyond. It’s an honor to work alongside the Children First board members, volunteers, as well as the neighborhood surrounding the David Nelson Pocket Park. Together, we will continue to put children first and strive for a brighter future.
