First Star balances education, policy, and research with public awareness to heighten visibility and to deepen knowledge about the plight of society’s most vulnerable children- those who are abused and neglected. Children cannot advocate for themselves, so the grown-ups must see that they are heard. First Star’s collaborative and multidisciplinary approach encourages interaction among various child-related constituencies, institutional and professional disciplines, and decision makers. The objective: To bring together theory and practice in making children’s welfare a first priority for all Americans.
First Star is a public charity dedicated to improving life for child victims of abuse and neglect.
The DNMF has been partnering with First Star since 2013.
