Since our establishment in 1969, our top priority has been to help and support members of our community. See what we’ve been up to recently and how we’re staying involved!
Family First recently sponsored the EASE Elite boys basketball team at the AAU World Championships – East Coast Division III Championships in Hampton, Virginia. These young men practiced hard all season to make it here and we are proud to support them on their journey!
With our sponsorship, the team was able to purchase new jerseys for the tournament. Keep up the great work!

On Saturday, June 5th, our team set out for the Henrietta Recreation Center bright and early to participate in the RH Kicking Hunger 5K.
This race is designed to bring awareness to the hunger issue that affects our community, while simultaneously promoting healthy lifestyles and family activities. Proceeds from this event support various efforts in the Henrietta community, including:
Funds from the 2020 race are currently being used to fund the establishment and future maintenance of the Kicking Hunger Food Pantry in the Good Shepherd Building (East Henrietta Road).

Look for our team again at next years race on June 4th, 2022!
On May 12th, our team drove out to Heritage Christian Services’ Shoecraft location to assist with their spring garden cleanup. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, and our team made quick work of trimming, weeding, and re-mulching their gardens.
We’ve spent the United Way’s Day of Caring at this same location in years past, but unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to cancel our 2020 trip. Considering their garden hadn’t been tended to in almost two years, it looked great!
This outing was the first in over a year since the start of the pandemic that allowed our team to get together in person, and being able to give back to our community at the same time made it that much more meaningful.
