About Us

Florida Family Network, Inc. aims its efforts and partnerships towards strengthening the roots that produce strong families.

 

The Florida Family Network, Inc. (FFN) is a community based agency since 2003. FFN's main goal is to restore and preserve the family structure, through networking, partnerships and collaboration with other public and private agencies.

 

FFN is about family empowerment and preservation. FFN is one voice that advocates for healthy families within healthy environments and communities. FFN is the vehicle for supporting families to become strong and self-sufficient. FFN is dedicated to strengthening and enhancing family and community life by offering locally based prevention, supportive services and coordinating partnerships with the affected families and communities. Our major approach is to encourage public and private agencies to work together; become more preventive, responsive, flexible, family-focused, strengths-based and holistic, and thus more effective in positive outcomes.
