Maryland Family Network provides a voice for children and all those concerned with their well-being — parents, child care providers, advocates, and community leaders. Through its strong advocacy and public policy presence, MFN has helped to make Maryland one of the best states in the country for early education and child care.
If you can pick up the phone or write a letter, you can become an effective advocate. You don’t need special training, experience, or money; all you need is passion and determination. Check out the MFN Advocacy Guide and the other resources available on the tabs to the left.
