Requirement for Membership

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.

Upcoming Events

ABFN Dads and Kids (and Moms and other Carers) Mid-Week Outing

Tue Jul 17, 2018, 9–11 am EDT

Bring your kids for a bike ride from Maynard’s Ice House Landing down the Assabet River Rail Trail to Crow Island Airfield. On the way we’ll stop and check out any beaver activity, possibly see a washing machine getting crushed at the scrap yard, and maybe even see an ultra-light take off at the airfield.
We’ll meet at the Ice House Landing parking lot by the intersection of Winter St and Boeske Ave, and ride out from there at 9:10am (if you’re late catch us up).

Dads (Moms and caretakers) come join us for the final trial ABFN Dads' (and Moms') Outing. This is the last gathering in a three month trial period of midweek get togethers with the kids during traditional work hours. These outings are targeted at male carers, but open to all!

Member events are open to all ABFN members in good standing, registered family members, and caregivers only. If an event is waitlisted and your membership is not current, your will lose your spot to a member in good standing on the waitlist. If you have any questions about your membership, please contact membership@abfamily.org.
