About Us

Our Mission

To provide a personalized, humancentric approach to helping families with disabilities find the right resources and support for every step of your journey

Who We Are

With more than 50 programs and services available for New Jersey residents living with epilepsy, autism, intellectual, developmental and physical 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 49 years. 

When you add these results to the thousands of people we reach through our family-friendly events, such as the “Glow, Walk, Run” Family 5k, and the Autism Beach Bash, it is clear we are making a difference in the health and happiness of thousands of families.

The Family Resource Network is a comprehensive family-focused umbrella of organizations designed to meet the growing need for community-based programs and services to individuals and families with a variety of disabilities and chronic conditions through our three affiliate organizations (below). The Family Resource Network is a statewide organization with offices located in East Windsor New Jersey. FRN serves approximately 30,000 individuals annually.

Our Network

Autism Family Services of New Jersey (AFSNJ) was created in order to better serve individuals and families affected by autism. With an array of after school services, and scholarship opportunities, AFSNJ strives to ensure a better quality of life for people with autism and their families.

Caregivers of New Jersey’s (CNJ) is proud to offer a centralized location for answers and information on all caregiving concerns. The growing number of caregivers in the state has increased the demand for advocacy, education, information and support.

Epilepsy Services of New Jersey (ESNJ), is a state-wide, non-profit charitable agency dedicated to helping improve the quality of life for people affected by epilepsy and their loved ones. ESNJ provides necessary programs for families living with epilepsy, such as a residential summer camp, support groups, scholarship opportunities, seizure first-aid and recognition training, and referral programs.
