Abstract: This article presents a broad conceptual framework that suggests ways in which community demands, resources, and strategies influence relationships between work demands, resources, and family well-being. Within-domain and boundary-spanning community demands and resources are proposed to combine with work demands and resources in relation to work-family conflict and facilitation. Boundary-spanning community strategies are expected to mediate and moderate relationships between work-family conflict and facilitation and family well-being. The paper closes with an agenda for future research and a strategy for policy and practice.
