Family Resource Networks (FRNs) are organizations that understand and are responsive to the needs and opportunities in West Virginia communities. Partnering with citizens and local organizations, the FRNs develop, coordinate and administer innovative projects and provide needed resources.
FRNs have been essential in generating additional resources for communities during the continuous federal and state budget cuts and economic downturn. This economy has not only effected the children and families of West Virginia, but the support systems that help to provide a safety net for our citizens- including social services, law enforcement agencies and schools. The FRNs have emerged as the safety net our communities have needed, while at the same time receiving 23% less in funding than in 2000, despite inflation. This erodes at the foundation of the work that FRNs are able to do in WV counties and jeopardizes the resources.
