Georgia Family Support Network Planning Meeting


What are the steps for developing a Family Support and Strengthening Network?

How can public and private funders and/or community-based organizations support families in their county, city, or state by developing a Network of Family Resource Centers?

What resources are available to support the development of these Networks?

Family Support and Strengthening Networks have emerged across the country in cities, counties, and states as an effective means of ensuring coordinated quality support for families. These Networks connect, organize, and support programs working with families, such as Family Resource Centers. Serving as the backbone entity to leverage the collective impact of their members, they create opportunities for service providers to exchange information, develop relationships, build capacity, and address challenges that no one organization could on its own.

Some of these Networks have been started by public or private funders, others by community-based organizations, and some by a combination of these and other stakeholders recognizing the value of coming together. Funders have an especially key role to play in terms of resourcing and strengthening the capacity of both Family Resource Centers and Network infrastructure.

Whether you are a funder or a community-based organization interested in developing a Network, this webinar will provide information and tools to support your next steps. The webinar will include a detailed review of two continua developed by the NFSN:
