Rotary Club Hears About The First Born Program Of Los Alamos At Weekly Meeting


Ellen Ben-Naim, executive director of the First Born Program of Los Alamos (FBPLA),  described the non-profit’s service to the community during Tuesday’s meeting of the Rotary Club of Los Alamos.  FBPLA provides ‘parents and primary caregivers with education and support to encourage normal growth and development of happy, healthy babies in positive, nurturing families.’ Free home visitation services to all families in Los Alamos County are also provided, and any of the program’s services may be requested at any time during pregnancy, at the birth of the baby, or until the baby is two months of age.  Service then continues until the child is three years old or until the family no longer requests services. FBPLA is dedicated to the principle that a ‘healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby are not only critical to the immediate well-being of mother and child but are also integral to the long-term health and success of the family and community.’  For more information, visit, or call 505.661.4810. Photo by Linda Hull
