An international network of Good Neighbors across the country who care and share resources to create a more caring, just and civil society to save our children's future.
The organization was started in 1993, by a welfare mom who believed the more resourceful we are among ourselves, the more valuable a resources we become to our families, our communities and our world.
Good Neighbors form Family Support Networks in homes, schools and faith-based communities. These are safe places where people struggling in life come to find support and discover ways to overcome their problems.
In 2006, the Family Support Network generated nearly 175,000 volunteer hours, valued at $2.6 million in community service on a budget less than $25,000.
