Family Values for Life works with families to help them chart a path out of crisis through spiritual empowerment, mental alertness, physical fitness, and financial stability. Together we build capacities for families to network and leverage resources within their community. Strong healthy families cultivate secure communities.
Driven by our mission, Family Values for Life provides programs and services to build holistic family stability for the BIPOC families we serve.
Our target population is low-income single-parent families living in East Side neighborhoods of Saint Paul. 70-80% of the families we serve are low-income. 90% of Family Values for Life program participants are people of color and 80% of regular participants are African American. 70% of our families are headed by single moms.
Family Values for Life is a multi-program human service agency helping families move from crisis to stability by addressing four "pillars" of wellbeing: spiritual, mental, physical, and financial.
Integrated programs reach more than 5,000 people per year and include crisis financial assistance, food shelf and basic needs support, skill-building workshops for single parents, grief and trauma support, family coaching and case management, community referrals, after-school family meals and homework help, targeted reading support for elementary students, mentoring, and summer camps.
