Welcome to Allegheny Family Network

Allegheny Family Network (AFN) is a family-run agency - all of our employees are parents or caregivers who have raised a child with mental health and/or emotional challenges.

Our staff (Family Support Partners) have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the areas of mental health and behavioral challenges.  They not only understand family and children’s rights but also know how and when to advocate on behalf of children with special needs. Our Family Support Partners not only understand what families are going through but use their personal experiences and expertise to supprt, inform, and empower families that are working to bring about positive change for their own children.
