Be responsible stewards of our communities' resources
Building Stronger Communities One Person at a Time
All of us, staff and volunteers alike at Family Pathways, take great pride in this grassroots, community-based agency. We want to share a little about the services we provide. Family Pathways changes people's lives by:
providing non-medical senior services, including advocacy, companionship and respite care, to seniors 60 and over so they may continue to live independently in their own homes.
providing hope and nourishment to adults and children in crisis with our food shelves and community advocacy program.
building awareness and sensitivity in youth and their families with our youth services programs.
For the past 33 years, we have served communities in Chisago, Isanti, Pine, Kanabec, and Mille Lacs counties. Family Pathways has expanded in response to growing needs and now serves residents in 7 counties throughout CentralMinnesotaand Western Wisconsin including the towns of Forest Lake and St. Croix Falls. Family Pathways continues building newprograms for children and teens, and adding new services based on the needs of our community. Recently we have added a new food shelf in Frederic, WI.
