About Us

Family Resource Network (FRN) programs focus on supporting the whole
family. This includes providing caregivers and parents with skills and knowledge
to strengthen family relationship, teaching children and teens to cope with
trauma and improve child and youth development by building resilience and 

fostering well-being. The FRN works on a "hub" and "spoke" model where each
community in Alberta has a designated Hub who can provide support and
referrals to Spoke program. Some of these programs are offered internally and
some programs are offered by partnered community agencies (external).
