Serving Families during COVID-19
The Family Partnership continues to support families with most of our programs remaining open during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Our remote workers are using confidential technology tools to support those in need of our services.

Programs assisting clients virtually include:
Preschools and day care
The Family Partnership re-opened our Children’s First Early Learning Center (as of May 20) and our Four Directions Family Center (as of May 26) with adherence to strict safety protocols. Our preschool staff are using a phased approach as they invite enrolled families to return their children to The Family Partnership centers.
A detailed TFP COVID-19 Safe and Healthy Workplace Plan has been implemented to provide maximum safety for children and staff. The Family Partnership’s plan is science-based and follows the guidelines published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), Minnesota Department of Human Services, and federal OSHA standards related to COVID-19 and includes, in part:
Unified Therapy Services
Our Unified Therapy staff will resume services to children at our preschools following all safety precautions. Our therapists are continuing working with children and families virtually until we resume services for other children at our facilities, or in facilities operated by community partners (such as PICA Head Start).
We have posted COVID-19 resources suggested by our program staff.
We are sensitive to the disruption our change in services means to those who need us the most. Our dedicated staff is committed to fulfilling The Family Partnership’s mission to building strong families, vital communities, and better futures for children.
Stay healthy and safe!
