Kids FIRST serves as Lane County's Children's Advocacy Center.

We provide intervention and advocacy to children who are victims of, or witnesses to, crime.  


When the unimaginable happens to children in our community, we are part of the first response team that supports the healing process. At Kids FIRST, children receive medical exams, forensic interviews, and advocacy when criminal child abuse has been reported.


Kids FIRST also houses grand jury on-site so children don't have to go to an unfamiliar courthouse.​ Kids FIRST is a 501(c)3 non-profit. ​

Our primary website kidsfirstcenter.net is under construction, but please feel free to visit

for more information while we update our look!
