First Star, Inc.

Los Angeles, CA

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.
