Community Resources for Families

We know this is a time of uncertainty and we are all facing circumstances we have never navigated before.  Our social workers are continually adding information to our Community Resource List  On this page, you can find links to resources on a wide range of topics including but not limited to school lunch programs, unemployment, insurance, food, wifi and technology, and mental health.  If you have needs beyond what is available on this list, please feel free to reach out to Elizabeth Sullivan or Anna Walters and they will try to assist you.

Medical Assistance (MA) and MinnesotaCare are available for families with children as well as adults who do not have children under age 19 living with them, are under age 65 and do not have a disability.  More information can be found on the Department of Human Services website.
