Maryland Family Network (MFN)
Maryland Family Network combines two statewide non-profits – Friends of the Family and Maryland Committee for Children – into a single organization committed to addressing the needs of pregnant women, children ages birth through five, and their families and caregivers. MFN’s mission is to ensure that young children and their families have the resources to learn and succeed. Their programs promote high quality child care, family support and related services. Maryland Family Network leads two statewide networks:
Family Support Centers help parents meet their goals of becoming economically self-sufficient and raising healthy, successful children.
Child Care Resource Centers help parents find child care and offer training to child care providers to improve the quality of child care.

Maryland Child Care Resource Network
Every community in Maryland is served by one of 12 regional child care resource and referral centers (CCRCs). Together, these 12 CCRCs make up the Maryland Child Care Resource Network, which provides leadership and services designed to improve the quality, availability and affordability of child care in communities across the state.

Maryland Family Support Network
Family Support Centers take a holistic approach – working with parents together with their young children – to set and achieve goals. These goals include healthy social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development for the young child as well as continued education and job readiness for parents.
