The Adolescent Resource Network (ARN) was established in 1991. ARN collaborates with the Maternal Child Health (MCH) Branch and Adolescent Family Life Program (AFLP). ARN focus is to advocate, network, and problem-solve issues that impact teens.
The Adolescent Resource Network is committed to improving adolescent services and community awareness through communication, education, outreach, and recommendations to the MCAH Advisory Board.
