Our response to COVID-19

In rapidly changing times with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are taking actions to protect the health and well-being of the people we serve as well as our staff.

Effective March 18, we closed The Family Partnership North Minneapolis preschool until further notice (1501 Xerxes Avenue N). This only applies to the preschool wing of the building.

Effective March 20 at 6 p.m., we will close the Four Directions Family Center until further notice.

We intend to continue services, at this time, in the following programs, while adjusting how we deliver services to children and families.

Mental Health ServicesHome Visiting, PRIDE and Mobility Mentoring.  These programs will use confidential technology tools to meet client needs and recommended protocols during COVID-19.  Any in-person meetings will strictly adhere to social distancing guidelines.

We are monitoring that those seeking services and our staff stay home if they develop symptoms including fever, cough, fatigue and shortness of breath. We have quarantine procedures in place for any of our staff with known contact to those who may have COVID-19.  We have restricted meetings to 10 people or less, mandated 6’ social distancing and have no out-of-state travel approved for our employees.

We will provide updates on this site and in social media as programs communicate directly with clients. If you have additional questions email info@thefamilypartnership.org or call 763-521-3477.

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.
