What is a Family Resource Network?

Because existing systems of delivering services to families and individuals are often fragmented and can be a source of stress for those who most need assistance, the Governor’s Cabinet on Children and families developed the concept of FRNs to encourage collaboration between families and agencies to design and plan services that are family-centered, strengths-focused, community-based, and prevention-oriented.
