Family Resource Connection

Family Resource ConnectionThe Family Resource Connection was established in 1997 by a group of community members seeking a way to provide comprehensive, community-based services for families in Northern Wisconsin.

Our principles

The principles of family support that guided the development of the Family Resource Connection continue to drive service delivery:

  • Staff and families work together in relationships based on equality and respect.
  • Staff enhance families' ability to support the growth and development of all family members - adults, youth and children.
  • Families are resources to their own members, to other families, to programs and to communities.
  • Programs affirm and strengthen families' cultural, racial and linguistic identities and enhance their ability to function in a multicultural society.
  • Family Resource ConnectionPrograms exist in their communities and contribute to the community-building process.
  • Programs advocate with families for services and systems that are fair, responsive and accountable to the families served.
  • Staff work with families to mobilize formal and informal resources to support family development.
  • Programs are flexible and continually responsive to emerging family and community issues.
  • Principles of family support are modeled in all program activities, including planning, governance and administration.
