MNsure, Navigator, health insurance, Minnesota



All families have what they need to reach their full potential and contribute to their community. The overall goal of this program/service is to meet the changing needs of families and children as they arise, as well as to build upon the existing strengths in the community.

  • The Family Center administers family support funding which assists families with basic needs if all other resources have been exhausted. This service could include gas vouchers to employment, dr’s appointments or school in an emergency situation.

  • The Family Center can provide vouchers to Hidden Jewels for clothing and household items.

  • The Family Center can connect families with resources both community and county wide.

  • The Family Center has a wonderful lending library – books on child development, parenting, health and prevention and much more!
