Provincial Family Resource Networks (FRNs) provide supports and services to help Alberta families become resilient, strong and healthy. Agencies within the FRN program deliver prevention and early intervention services and supports for children and youth aged 0 to 18 and their families.

FRNs offer in person and virtual services to communities across Alberta, to assist families regardless of where they live.

70 FRNs across Alberta provide information and referral services that support families to connect with their FRN as well as other community supports. FRNs also coordinate services and network-based activities in different communities and geographical areas. There are 35 FRNs that serve rural communities, as well as 10 Indigenous and one Francophone FRN that serves both rural and urban communities.

Supporting Alberta families

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.

Children benefit from developing a solid foundation in their early years. FRNs can help them build that foundation with programs focused on early development and learning, social and emotional support and community connections.
