Family Health & Support Network is a great organization who roll their sleeves up in order to live up to their name. They haven't just talked the talk, but they have walked the walk. I have been affiliated with them by supporting their fundraising activities and family functions that include not only children, and not only adults, but the whole family. They are a support mechanism for our children, teens , and adults, and this is evidenced in the relationship between their staff, no matter what color, race, or creed. There is a saying, " It takes a village to raise a child." Family Support & Health Network is having their share of not only helping to raise our children, but teaching them, and exposing them to GREAT experiences in life that wil encourage them to succeed in school and college or even as an entrepreneur. They have proved that family support is they key to a happy and healthy life and have open their dooors with the mission to extend their love and support to every individual or family who walks thru their door, embracing ALL as part of their family. YOU ARE WONDERFUL Family Support and Health Network, and on TOP in my book!

I became acquainted with Family Health & Support network, Inc over a year ago and was very impressed with the level of care and devotion the organization has comitted to insuring that the needs of children in foster care are being met. I have over twenty years experience working in the foster care system at various levels as a social worker. I have observed that FHSN goes beyond the call of duty in providing services and support to children in foster care, certified foster parents, and the families of children in foster care. FHSN is an excellent advocate for the children; they recruit the most caring and interested foster parents, and they secure any and all necessary services for the children and their families.

Family Health & Support Network, Inc. holds true to the philosophy of "Every Child Deserves to be Loved"! This organization has proven that they care not only about the children served but also their families. The entire staff at FHSN consistently go above and beyond the call of duty to demonstrate concern for the well-being of displaced children. It's not often that you find a progressive, non-judgmental social service organization due to the nature of the business. So, kudos to FHSN for "getting it" and choosing to make a positive impression in the lives of the children and families that we all serve in some capacity. Congratulations on a job well done!
