Building strong families, vital communities, and better futures for children.
We envision a Twin Cities where all children and families, regardless of income or origins, reach their full potential. The Family Partnership will be the leader in closing opportunity and achievement gaps for children and families living in poverty by providing high impact, multicultural services; building powerful community partnerships; and changing public policy.
2015-2020 Strategic Priorities
Community Impact: Reduce opportunity and achievement gaps for families living in poverty.
Leadership: Provide multicultural leadership, education, and training locally and nationally to build community partnerships and increase impact.
Community Awareness: Heighten community awareness to reduce poverty and violence, increase educational achievement, and strengthen families.
Innovation and Technology: Empower and educate clients and communities through technology.
Sustainability: Stabilize our physical environment to empower, expand, and strengthen our programs and our financial and human resources.
