Breaking The Cycle of Poverty, Abuse and Neglect

Generational poverty and trauma exposure underlie health and educational disparities faced by parents and young children of color in Minneapolis.

Southside Family Nurturing Center was founded on the knowledge that with the right tools and support, families can break the cycles of poverty, abuse and neglect, nurturing stronger futures for themselves and their young children.

In the Phillips community of South Minneapolis, Southside Family Nurturing Center is unique in that we are the only trauma-informed, dual-generation intervention program combining therapeutic early childhood education with intensive home visiting/family support services to families at highest-risk and living in poverty.
