On the job in Los Alamos is Executive Director Ellen Specter gathering gifts for new clients at First Born Program of Los Alamos (FBPLA). FBPLA is a nonprofit organization that provides parents and primary caregivers with education and support to encourage normal growth and development of happy, healthy babies in positive, nurturing families in Los Alamos County. Services are free and may be requested at any time during pregnancy, at the birth of the baby, or until the baby is two months of age, and continue until the child is five years old, or until the family no longer requests program services. When space is available, families with little ones who are older than 2 months old can join the program. FBPLA is at 190 Central Park Square in the Small Business Development Center. There is room for more families, and the program is looking at expanding in the near future. The FBPLA home visitors are a diverse group and include staff fluent in Spanish, Hindi, Mandarin, Taiwanese and Hebrew. Participants in the program represent speakers of more than 20 languages. The program is relationship‐centered and curriculum‐based. Families receive support, information about pregnancy, early childhood development, health, nutrition and safety and learn fun activities to help build brain development and learning. Through weekly home visits, families identify personal goals, recognize challenges and opportunities for growth and build a healthy, loving, playful relationship with their child.
