Welcome to the Family Resource Network of the Panhandle

The Family Resource Network of the Panhandle (FRNOTP) is a 501(c)(3) corporation purposed to facilitate establishment of a system of prevention, education and early intervention activities aimed at enabling families, children and their communities to reach their fullest potential through community based planning activities for Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan Counties, along with other activities as described and established in accordance with §49-1-206. FRNOTP also serves as a clearinghouse for all human service resource information within the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.  FRNOTP does not provide direct client services.

It is the mission of FRNOTP to serve as a voice of the people in our community, and serve as forum to communicate the needs of our families within our communities. FRNOTP facilitates collaborative efforts among agencies and organizations to ensure accessible, affordable and efficient family services throughout the entire Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.  This program is being presented with financial assistance through a grant from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.

In order to fulfill this mission, FRNOTP hosts and provides oversight to the Health and Human Services Collaborative (HHSC). This collaborative effort is comprised of its membership group of over 70 human service agencies within the Eastern Panhandle, as well as members of the community.  The HHSC manages its efforts through a Steering Committee, and five strategic work groups:  Behavioral Health Work Group, Health Work Group, Kids in Transition (KIT) Collaborative, and Strong and Stable Families Work Group.
