Milestone: First Step gets $20K boost from Wilder family

First Step Family Support Center announced last week the gift of $20,000 from the Wilder family, a donation that will help to support First Step’s mission of promoting the healthy development of children and families on the North Olympic Peninsula.

The nonprofit also announced last week the donation of $1,000 from First Security Bank, the result of a shred event in November.

First Step offers maternity support, parenting education classes, home-visiting programs and center-based activities so that families have the advantage in raising healthy and happy children. Programs are offered at no charge to the client and are made possible by the generosity of the community and funded in part by state and local funding opportunities, grants, and Medicaid.
