A groundbreaking ceremony Feb. 20 celebrated the construction start on The Family Partnership’ s (TFP) new resource center located in the heart of the Phillips and Powderhorn neighborhoods of south Minneapolis. In the last five years, demand for TFP’s programs has risen by 50 percent, leaving many families without crucial support. The new facility will feature 3X more space for TFP’s services!
“It’s more than just brick and mortar. It’s a project that will enable expansion of effective programs and supports – not just for the child – but for the family and the whole community,” said Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey. The groundbreaking is a milestone for the “Building for Better Futures” capital campaign that began in 2014 and has secured $22.47M so far. Tom Woessner, TFP Board Chair and Molly Greenman, TFP President & CEO thanked the elected officials, civil servants, private philanthropists, project and community partners and TFP’s staff and board members who helped make this project possible. Construction is scheduled to complete in the first half of 2021 with a grand opening celebration in the summer.
