WHAT IS A FAMILY RESOURCE NETWORK?
Provincial Family Resource Networks (FRNs) deliver high quality prevention and early intervention services and supports for children aged 0 to 18.
Networks provide a range of services and supports that focus on strengthening parenting and caregiving knowledge, social support, coping and problem-solving skills, access to community supports and resources, improving child and youth development, building resiliency and fostering well-being.
Through a ‘hub and spoke’ model of service delivery, Networks (hubs) will coordinate the prevention and early intervention services in all geographic areas and in various cultural communities across the province – either directly or through collaborative partnerships with qualified service agencies or providers (spokes).

Ages and Stages
Screening young children is an effective, way for professionals to check a child’s development, help parents celebrate their child’s milestones and know what to look for next. It’s also an essential first step toward identifying children with delays or disorders in the critical early years, even before they start school.

GIRLS EMPOWERMENT GROUP
You could go it alone...but you don't have to.
Lots of teens suffer in silence. They feel like they should be able to handle all of the pressures of their lives alone. In group, we help teens explore their identities, challenge social constructs, find their community and voice.
