Family Resource Networks

Family Resource Networks (FRNs) provide prevention and early intervention services and support for children 0 – 18 years of age. Networks offer a range of services and support that focus on strengthening parenting and caregiving knowledge, social support, coping and problem-solving skills, access to community supports and resources, improving child and youth development, building resiliency and fostering well-being.
