We tell each other: if you have an emergency at home or with your child, it’s ok to walk out the door.
"Family first" means working more (or less) depending on your financial needs and the needs of your child. It means bringing your infant to work for the first year and working from home when you need to. In a very multicultural office, we celebrate all our children and all our holidays - from Eid to Xmas. We want FRN to be a place where everyone is happy to come to work.
“I started as a client at FRN. I was able to preserve critical services that could easily be lost. It was important to me that my child have friends and be in her neighborhood school and grow with the kids in her neighborhood. We would not have been able to figure this out without the help of FRN because there are not many who would take our calls.” -KANAKA
