Family Resource Networks (FRNs) are local coalitions working to improve services for children and families in their communities. FRNs assess community needs, develop local plans, promote changes, evaluate results, and assist agencies in improving the service delivery system. They increase community awareness of local and state issues that affect children and families, support local partnerships to maximize community investments, promote coordination of services, and promote opportunities for families to impact decisions that affect them.

Volunteer Opportunities

When a disaster strikes, either locally, regionally, or nationally, many of us feel the need to reach out to those neighbors affected and in need. We can feel their pain, their loss, and their suffering. Jesus Christ encourages us to extend our hand in love, support, prayer, and encouragement. Partner with us to help those who find themselves in need during and after a disaster.
