Our Thrift Stores are more than a place to find a bargain, Family Pathways Thrift Stores transform donated goods into opportunity, investment, and good environmental stewardship.
Family Pathways is the fastest growing non-profit thrift store in East Central Minnesota and Polk County Wisconsin.

Investing profit back into the community through Family Pathways essential needs programming
Being a community partner and resource for affordable clothing and household items
Providing employment and volunteer opportunities
Keeping millions of pounds of goods out of the landfill

We are looking for volunteers to come and help at the stores. Volunteers do a variety of tasks within the stores. We are following all CDC guidelines at this time and complete background checks along with wearing a mask.

We have been committed to standing by the side of our neighbors since 1978. We’ve done this by working together with partners, individuals, businesses, organizations, and faith communities who are passionate about their communities. Over the past four decades, we’ve adapted to the needs of the communities we serve in the City of Forest Lake; Carlton, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, and Pine Counties in Minnesota and Polk County in Wisconsin.

Family Pathways’ support services provides healthy food access, domestic and sexual violence prevention and victim services, supervised visitation, services for older adults and caregivers.

Volunteers come from all walks of life, backgrounds, service groups, businesses, youth groups, and educational systems. Some are brought to our agency through the court system to complete community service hours. We strive to provide everyone with an opportunity to contribute.
