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.

Gala Postponed

For the health of our staff, clients, partners, donors, and board members – our annual Gala will be postponed until October 23rd. We are doing what we can to be a source of hope and positivity for our community & we do plan to celebrate with you in October.

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.
