Who We Are
With more than 50 programs and services available for New Jersey residents living with epilepsy, autism, developmental disabilities and chronic illness, The Family Resource Network (FRN) and its affiliates have been affecting lives of thousands of families across New Jersey for the past 41 years. FRN, originally known as the Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey, has been providing support services to individuals with special needs and their families since 1970.
The Family Resource Network is a comprehensive family-focused umbrella organization designed to meet the growing need for community-based programs and services to individuals and families with a variety of disabilities through our four affiliate organizations (below). The Family Resource Network is a statewide organization with offices located in Brick, Parsippany, Trenton and Westmont.
In 2011, FRN served 28,955 individuals in NJ. When you add these results to the thousands of people we reach through our family-friendly events, such as the Walk for a Brighter Tomorrow and the Beach Bash, it is clear we are making a difference in the health and happiness of thousands of families.
The Family Resource Network (FRN) is dedicated to offering individuals and their families with continuing needs the greatest opportunities, resources and services to support a full and happy life.
