About this event

  • 2 hours 15 minutes
  • Mobile eTicket
  • What progress is being made on strengthening our nation’s families by investing in Family Resource Centers (FRCs)?
  • How can Networks of FRCs be effective vehicles for supporting families to thrive?
  • How can your work connect with, leverage, and support FRCs and FRC Networks?

This interactive and free annual virtual event designed for stakeholders working at the national, state, and local systems and policy levels will highlight perspectives on the value of Family Resource Centers and Family Resource Center Networks and explore how and why they continue to be scaled across the country. Ninety-eight percent of participants in last year’s Briefing found it helpful in informing their work.

Participants will receive the annual progress report on the Blueprint for the Development of Strong Networks of Family Resource Centers and learn how they can support its successful implementation.

Participants will also have the unique opportunity to virtually tour a community-based or school-based FRC and visit two FRC Networks of their choice.

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 Resource Center Networks in 38 states and the District of Columbia that work with more than 2 million people annually.
