The Acton-Boxborough Family Network serves the MA towns of Acton, Boxborough and surrounding communities.

Acton-Boxborough Family Network (ABFN), based in Acton, Massachusetts, is a nonprofit group of parents and caregivers working together to increase and improve local resources for families with young children. ABFN members share the goal of connecting with other parents and families in order to develop social, recreational, service, and cultural opportunities for families and their young children.

ABFN offers themed events throughout the year, monthly story hours and craft hours, a babysitting co-op, weekly outings, a book group, weekly playgroups, educational seminars, moms' night out, dads' night out, a newsletter, online forum, local discounts, and much more.

As a part of our commitment to developing and sustaining a vibrant community, we strive to create an environment of inclusivity. ABFN welcomes all people regardless of their age, culture, disabilities, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. It is our goal to be inclusive, mindful, and respectful of this diversity in our programs and interactions with others.

Along with the Blanchard PTF and with funding from a CHNA15 grant, ABFN is bringing a screening of the acclaimed film, "Screenagers," to our community. This screening is free and open to all of Acton and Boxborough.

https://www.screenagersmovie.com/: "Award-winning SCREENAGERS probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director's own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world."

Lauren Abraham, Boxborough's Town Resource Director, will facilitate a discussion following the screening.
