Support the Physical, Emotional and Mental
Well-Being of our Children and Families

LCTS (Local Collaborative Time Study) funding administered by the Minnesota Department of Human Services comprises the majority of our funding, and we are also supported public and private resources (financial and in-kind).


However, state funding has declined in recent years while the needs of our communities have significantly increased.

Our teams are available for youth and families year-round. Area schools are asking for more FSC team members. Teachers, county staff and others referred more than 800 children and families to us in 2019 alone.

There are many ways to impact children and families by supporting the Family Services Collaborative!  

  • Individual Gifts

  • Business Donation

  • Wills and Trusts

  • Securities

  • Family Gifts

  • Service Organizations

  • Life Insurance Policies

  • Property​
