Providing Support for Families Across the Lifespan
The purpose of the NFSTAC is to advance positive partnerships between families and providers to promote stronger and more sustainable outcomes for families and their children across the lifespan.
Our Commitment to Social Change
At the National Family Support Technical Assistance Center (NFSTAC), we believe that we must rediscover our capacity for lifting up all members of our society, no matter their lived experiences, challenges, or personal traumas. By focusing on peoples’ potential – rather than their differences – we can begin to build stronger and more inclusive neighborhoods. We believe that true equity is the result of vibrant communities and responsive systems that promote self-reliance and interdependence and that celebrate diversity.

The NFSTAC Team
The NFSTAC is led by the National Federation of Families, a family-run organization, in partnership with subject matter experts that includes families and family leaders and other such partners like: Partnership to End Addiction, C4 Innovations, SAFE Project, and Boston University. The Center’s approach is anchored by the underlying principle that families play a vital role in supporting their children and are the experts regarding their family support needs.
