The CRN Story

Community Resource Network of Florida, LLC provides compassionate care and services to adults and children with disabilities. We believe every person should have access to individualized services to enhance their quality of life. We are driven to help people of all ages and abilities thrive at home and in the community.

CRN is an organization grown out of necessity to support those in need. In 2009, we began serving the needs of people with developmental disabilities. Based on feedback and need from the community, we expanded our services in 2017 to include people without developmental disabilities who need compassionate, individualized care. We started with 60 direct support providers, and we now operate with more than 275 direct support providers to serve approximately 500 people throughout Florida.

Our Mission

Community Resource Network of Florida, LLC believes that every person should have access to individualized services to enhance their quality of life. We are driven by supporting individuals of all ages and abilities to thrive at home and in the community.

CRN provides services for people of any age — from birth to late in life — including companion services, personal support, respite care, personal care services, transportation, life skills programs, speech and occupational therapies, homemaker services and more.
We continue to grow, but our guiding principles remain the same. We believe the needs of the individual should be at the heart of everything we do.

Our Vision

Community Resource Network of Florida, LLC is driven to help and advocate for individuals. Our goal is to expand the organization’s reach to become the first choice for any individual in need. Compassionate care is the heart of who we are.
