The Family Partnership

New Social Services Headquarters Relocation

Minneapolis, Minn.

With community needs outpacing facility and program capacities and the goal to join three existing office locations into one efficient headquarters location, The Family Partnership (TFP) launched the “Building for Better Futures” capital campaign to centralize and expand important social services that strengthen the lives of community members in the Twin Cities. A strategic site selection process identified an underutilized site that is both conveniently located for TFP clients and enhanced by a culturally diverse neighborhood.

The relocated headquarters will uplift families through the healing elements of TFP’s Two-Generation Approach, which unites children and parents through programs that improve social, educational, and economic outcomes. Additional classrooms for TFP’s therapeutic preschool program will provide greater access to age appropriate programs, as well as secure indoor and outdoor play areas displaying cheerful animal themes. Safe, private, and therapeutic counseling areas will give relief to victims of sex trafficking and those improving their mental health. Through the support of a more flexible, community-focused facility, TFP will have the necessary tools for strengthening families and creating better, healthier lives.
