Event description
Interactive systems/policy event focused on engaging stakeholders in understanding and scaling Family Resource Centers and Networks of FRCs.

About this Event

  • How have Family Resource Centers (FRCs) been scaled nationwide in the last decade?
  • How can Networks of FRCs be effective vehicles for supporting the advancement of our nation's families? 
  • How can your work connect with, leverage, and support Family Resource Centers and Family Support and Strengthening Networks?

This interactive annual virtual event designed for stakeholders working at the systems and policy levels will highlight perspectives on the value of Family Resource Centers and Family Support and Strengthening Networks and explore how and why they continue to be scaled across the country. It will also celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the National Family Support Network and share the progress of advancing FRCs in the last decade.

Described as "America’s best kept secret," there are more than 3,000 community and school-based FRCs in both rural and urban settings, organized into Family Support and Strengthening Networks in 32 states and the District of Columbia, that work with more than 2 million people annually.  

Participants will receive the annual progress report on the Advancing the Family Support and Strengthening Field Project Strategic Recommendations and learn how they can engage in their successful implementation to support families to thrive in every state through the development of strong and effective Networks of Family Resource Centers. 

Recommended Participants: Key stakeholders working at the systems and policy levels such as national, state, and local policymakers, public departments, Child Welfare leaders, Children's Trust Fund staff, private funders, and nonprofit organizations.

Optional Add On Opportunities: Two virtual tours of Family Resource Centers will be offered, one which is school-based (12:30-1:30pm ET) and one which is community-based (4:00-5:00pm ET).
