About Us

Just in Time Care is a program of Children & Families First, a non-profit social services agency, that has been located in Wilmington, DE since 1884. The mission of Children & Families First is to help families develop solutions to meet challenges and embrace opportunities. Through various mergers with other charitable organizations over the years, Children & Families First remains focused on the vision of: Communities where children are nurtured and safe; individuals are valued; and families are strong.

On February 1, 2008, The Family & Workplace Connection, initially home to the Just in Time Care program, became part of Children & Families First. We provide programs, comprehensive information and appropriate resources to caregivers, empowering them with the knowledge to make the best choices for their dependent care needs. Businesses directly contract with us to provide corporate referral services to their employees. These include both regional and national companies, large and small.

Children & Families First employs close to 250 people. Staff members have credentials and experience in early childhood, geriatrics, human services, education, special education, social work, and include counselors, licensed clinical social workers, parent educators, paraprofessionals, outreach workers and medical personnel. In addition, members of the Board of Directors bring the perspective of employers, families, care providers, as well as a wealth of expertise in the corporate, nonprofit, education, and public sectors.
