Partners and providers

The Minnesota Department of Human Services has strong partnerships with counties, tribes, health care providers, other state agencies, consumer groups, advocacy organizations, community-based services and other partners in human services to address Minnesotans' needs.

Child care and child support

The Minnesota Department of Human Services works with many partners, including employers and child care providers, to help Minnesota’s children get the services they need for their healthy development.

Continuing care

The Minnesota Department of Human Services strives to help people live with choices and as independently as possible for as long as possible. Our partnerships with care providers and others are essential to our success.

Counties and tribes

The strong partnership between the Minnesota Department of Human Services and counties and tribes is a key part of Minnesota’s safety net. Without county and tribal partners, many of Minnesotans most important human services could not be delivered.

Economic supports

The Minnesota Department of Human Services strives to support qualifying individuals and families with economic assistance, food and nutrition programs.

Health care

Providing health care is a major part of the department's mission, and our partnerships with a broad range of health care providers — from safety net providers to managed care organizations — helps make sure Minnesotans receive the care they need.
