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.

We Are Open and Going Virtual

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.
