We're just doing it a little bit differently. To comply with social distancing due to COVID-19, we have suspended all in-person therapy and parent education. The Family Enhancement Center has officially transitioned to offering virtual services utilizing Zoom video software.

Since April, The Family Enhancement Center has recently transitioned all psychotherapy and parent education services to a virtual format, utilizing Zoom video software. At this time, families are experiencing a lot of stress and anxiety. They are worried about getting sick, loss of income, loss of structure & stability, and adjusting to having children at home. Our ability to offer mental health services and other educational services is more vital now, than ever before.

Offering therapy and parent support using electronic devices is not ideal – this kind of virtual therapy has its limitations – but we are adapting and moving forward! Our staff is continually learning how to best translate their services to a virtual format and how to engage children and families in therapy over a screen.

Interested in receiving virtual psychotherapy or parent education? We’re here to help! Give us a call at 612-827-3028 or email us at info@mnpreventabuse.org

Remember to Vote

Need Help With Voting?

Voting is one of the many ways we can ensure that all voices are heard. Our commitment to anti-racism work means increasing voter access, removing barriers, and naming the systems of oppression that create those barriers. We recognize that voting during COVID-19 might feel like a confusing, anxiety-ridden process. This year’s guide contains info on how to register to vote, how to vote by mail, and how to safely vote in person. We hope it will equip you with the knowledge to vote safety and make sure your ballot is counted!

Our Renewed Commitment - Family Enhancement Center

Our Renewed Commitment

Striving to Be An Anti-Racist Agency

We have been appalled by the senseless murder of George Floyd, and stand with our South Minneapolis neighbors in saying “Enough!” Racism has been a part of many of our institutions and it hurts us all.

The staff and board of the Family Enhancement Center have been struggling with how, as an agency, we can authentically respond to this latest injustice against a person of color. We have had difficult conversations, supported one another and tried to make sure our staff persons of color know that the Family Enhancement Center has their back. But frankly, that is not enough.

KARE11 TV Interviews FEC Director Libby Bergman

No child should have to experience abuse.

Childhood is both precious and brief; child abuse shatters a childhood and its effect is damaging for a child, the family and our community. The mission of Family Enhancement Center is to create lasting solutions to prevent and heal child abuse. We strive to build strong children, strong families and support communities to create a society where children are safe, respected and valued. Child abuse robs children of their childhood—we help give it back.
