Even if you need assistance right now doesn't mean you can't help someone else down the road.
The FSN website was designed to provide the highest level of protection of
your private information. It was made possible by an extraordinary team of
developers who contributed their time and expertise to make it easy for you
to connect to information, opportunities, and each other.
The features of the website enable you to:
find Good Neighbors in your community or anywhere in the world
connect with people who share your interests or can teach you new skills
locate equipment, supplies, and services on the FSN Resource Treasury
start Community Weaving in your neighborhood, school, church, organization, or business

link up with neighbors to create your own resource network on the Good Neighbors Net
organize neighborhood activities and community events
promote educational, social, and recreational opportunities
organize change initiatives to address issues such as public health,
safety, education, emergency preparedness, and community improvements
We compile reports to leverage changes in public policies and show policy
makers and funders the many ways you are taking responsibility to improve
conditions in your community and serving as leaders, advocates, role models, and change
agents. Together we can weave a grassroots web of support around the world and reduce the demand for formal services, so agencies can provide a higher quality of service to those needing them the most.
The Family Support Network is a non profit 501(c)3 organization.
We are an all-volunteer organization supported by private contributions,
training and consulting fees. It has been our policy, since our inception in 1993,
not to tap into public dollars. We hope you will become a Good Neighbor and invite
your family, friends, and associates to help grow this grassroots community-building effort.
