The decision to begin a KIDS FIRST clinic in Pocahontas was strengthened by strong local interest and emphasized by the unanimous support of people who attended a large community meeting held at Black River College.
The original KIDS FIRST was donated by a local manufacturing company. KIDS FIRST relocated to its current location in the mid 1990s in a building designed for children and built by local business interests. KIDS FIRST is preparing for another move in June 2009 to allow expansion to seven treatment rooms, playroom and offices – located just down the road from the current building.
One of the first "Family Fun Fairs" was held in Pocahontas sponsored by KIDS FIRST and the local CO-MEND council. These groups, made up of interested local professionals in business, education, medicine and service provision, assist the community in accessing necessary services for children and families while providing fun activities. A large number of children and families attended those annual events.
KIDS FIRST works in cooperation with local, area and state colleges to provide observation and training to nursing, early childhood and special education students.
