Our Story

Established in 1985 by a group of concerned parents, Family Support Network (FSN) has evolved into a multi-faceted, family-focused resource center serving over 7,000 children and adults by providing mentoring services, support groups, resource referrals, developmental screenings, summer camps, and basic needs support throughout Orange County. Contributed funds are used wisely in order to maximize program budgets. 92% of all dollars received by FSN are allocated to program services compared to 67% for the average not-for-profit organization. In addition, all FSN programs are free-of-charge, and services may be provided in English or Spanish.
