The National Family Support Network conducts a National Forum each May in Washington, DC to focus attention on the value of Family Resource Centers and Family Support and Strengthening Networks, to highlight progress towards and opportunities for implementing the Advancing the Family Support and Strengthening Field Strategic Recommendations, and to provide participants with a unique opportunity to connect with Family Support and Strengthening Networks from across the country. Key stakeholders working at the systems and policy levels such as national, state, and local policymakers, public departments, Children's Trust Fund staff, private funders, and national nonprofit organizations are welcomed to participate.
National Forum Cancellation
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, for the health and safety of all, the National Family Support Network has decided to cancel the May 19 National Forum in Washington, DC. In lieu of the event, the NFSN will hold a Webinar Wednesday on May 20 to provide a progress update on the Advancing the Family Support and Strengthening Field Project - the steps needed to support families to thrive in every state through the development of strong and effective Networks of Family Resource Centers. In the meantime, we welcome you to continue to learn more about and connect with Family Resource Centers and Family Support and Strengthening Networks through the NFSN Webinar Wednesdays and website.
