A major element of PA's statewide strategy of supporting families is the launch of the PA Family Network.
Our strategy is to encourage and support collaboration at the local and regional level, thus embracing the broad and rich diversity that defines Pennsylvania's character: diversity in geography, demographics, cultures and ethnicity, history and traditions, and local identity.
