Family Support Networking is a grass roots community mobilization approach that increases community capacity and social capital by engaging citizens to pool resources, network with one another and co-create initiatives for the common good of the community. As a Community Weaver, you will learn how to start-up Family Support Networks in schools, churches, neighborhoods, associations and agencies within your community and train volunteers as Family Advocates/Liaisons. You will gain insight into transformative community building theories and practices and learn practical applications of ABCD (Asset-Based Community Development) and Family Support principles that underpin the FSN methodology. All the tools, techniques, technology and expertise you need are provided to customize change initiative(s) to empower families toward self-sufficiency and better meet the needs of your community. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to engage, train and mobilize a grass roots social support system that serves as a safety net for families, fosters social capital and functions interdependently with formal systems to improve the health and welfare of the whole community from the inside out.
