Putting kids first - every time!

4kids1st was founded because every kid deserves the opportunity to learn, to build relationships, to have enough nourishment to be able to focus on education and to be a part of building a better tomorrow regardless of their socio-economic status.


4kids1st is an advocacy network, created to support families through the Individualized Educational Program (IEP) process with the school district. We provide newly diagnosed families with the support necessary to understand their rights in the school system and help them secure the best education for their child.

Whether through legal services, educational consulting, or simply articles and resources, 4kids1st seeks to provide the tools for children to get the education they deserve.

4kids1st is committed to developing collaborative efforts with the community, other non-profits, professionals, and educational institutions to facilitate educational support, advocacy, parent education, and training. Executive Director, Kathy Greco has the responsibility of building these programs and relationships, developing training for parents and professionals, and overseeing the educational advocacy for each client.

Should 4kids1st determine that an IEP is the best option for a child, 4kids1st will then agree to represent the client. 4kids1st will then work alongside the family and school district in order to give the child the best possible education they have the right to.
