About First Sun EAP

Established in 1992, First Sun EAP was born from the dreams of our founder, Don Lake. It was Don’s desire to build a business that encourages employees and clients to dream big and find success personally and professionally. He envisioned First Sun as an employer where people come first and where compassion, caring and customer service are performed at their highest level. This dream is the foundation for our business today … and one that carries us into our future.  


Every day, we draw on Don’s legacy of creativity, forward-thinking, and a spirit of caring for people. Each staff member at First Sun exercises our promise of caring, responsiveness and results. We are committed to our vision — To shine as we partner with organizations and the community and to provide services that help people be better at work.

Our Focus

We are dreamers, doers and educators. We believe that with the right resources and support everyone can live their best life. That’s why we provide a well-rounded program that cares for the whole person as well as the health of the organization. We make services easily accessible, available in multiple formats and seek innovative solutions that make us better — so you can be better.
