System of care communities are challenged with developing and implementing a family-driven array of services and supports. The National Family Support Network offers the Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support, a framework with the vision is implementation will help ensure that families are supported and strengthened through quality practice. It was designed to be used by all stakeholders–public departments, foundations, community-based organizations, and parents–across different kinds of Family Strengthening and Family Support programs as a tool for planning, providing, and assessing quality practice. This Learning Community provides an overview of the National Family Support Network, its Standards of Quality, and how family leaders and family-run organizations can use the Standards to bring communities together for implementation of quality family support practices.
