Letter from the Director
Frank W. Jones, Jr.

Families First is here for you! Family Members of Pen Argyl Borough, Wind Gap Borough and Plainfield Township!


Families First was designed and developed by members of the Pen Argyl Area School District community who saw a need for more services in their neighborhood. The committee was made up of educators, guidance professionals, health care providers, business professionals, and parents all living in this neighborhood. Families First has a vision that takes commitment, dedication, genuine concern, and loving care to see that needed services are brought to this community. By working in partnership with over 30 service providers in the Lehigh Valley and Slate Belt areas, Families First has brought much needed assistance to students, parents and seniors in the Pen Argyl Area School District.

We are here to assist you with improving your current situation. Be it a housing concern, medical care, employment issues, counseling, parenting, increased job skills, or an empathetic listening ear in order to get you through some tough times. Our family center is here to help you find the necessary resources you need and/or to encourage, nurture and mentor you or any family member.

Families First is supported solely by grants, donations, memberships, and the in-kind support of the Pen Argyl Area School District. Your interest and support is welcome, we need Volunteers, Board Members, and financial support to continue our services for all members of the community.

I am very proud to be a part of this wonderful Family Center and I welcome the opportunity to work with and for such dedicated and caring individuals.

If you need assistance of any type, we are here for you. Together we will work toward improving your family’s life situation. Together we can improve your family’s quality of life, and/or increase your income potential in order to build a better economic base for the Pen Argyl Community.

“By Serving Today’s Needs, We Build A Better Tomorrow”
