The Family Parternship is bringing people together to make change happen.
Make Change Happen
Family & Children's Service has been bringing people together to make change happen for more than 125 years. Last year, 26,000 people turned to us for help. We have four office locations and our staff are in communities and schools throughout the metro area. Most people know us for our mental health counseling, but we also work to help children succeed at school and help parents rebuild a sense of community in neighborhoods
where families live in poverty and isolation.
Family & Children's Service works in three ways:
- Helping people solve problems, including family violence, school failure, delinquency, depression & prostitution.
- Helping people prevent problems by teaching life skills in parenting, anger management and conflict resolution.
- Helping people change community conditions by gathering together families in distressed neighborhoods, and by advocating for children and families throughout Minnesota.

Since 1878, The Family Partnership has helped more than one million people realize their dreams. We began under the Minneapolis Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals as the branch which protected children and women from abuse during a time when more protection was given to neglected animals than abused children and women. Although the services we offer have changed over the years, we have never strayed from our commitment to help improve the lives of our community's most vulnerable children and families.
Building strong families, vital communities, and capable children.
