Topics range from the effects of violence on children, to dating violence, date rape drugs, domestic/sexual assault myths and facts, and community resources.
Cox will play Deacon’s father Gideon, a recently reformed, lifelong alcoholic who’s back to try and heal a long broken relationship with his son.
The character is described as “a crusty, frustrated, would-be musician, who resented his son’s success.” Maestro will play Rosa, a dedicated follower of Darius’ (Josh Stamberg) Movement who begins to have doubts about her role in it.
Children ages 3 through 19 are provided individual, family, and group counseling sessions to overcome the effects of witnessing violence in the home and, in some cases, the effects of being victimized directly by physical or sexual abuse.
First Step also recognizes the need for fun and recreation.
