Our Mission

“Together with families and community, we nurture children, build on family strengths, and find alternatives to violence.”

Since 1974, Southside has offered services to children and families in the heart of the Phillips neighborhood. Our agency was one of the first private, nonprofit agencies to implement holistic family interventions in Minnesota: early childhood education and family support with home visiting services.

When parents receive the support and care they need and deserve, they create bright futures for themselves and their children.
