Community Resource Centers
Community resource centers are community-based coordinated points of entry that provide culturally responsive, relationship-based service navigation and other supportive services for expecting and parenting families and youth. Community resource centers focus on ensuring that families have equitable access to programs and services that promote protective factors and support children and families.
The Minnesota Legislature awarded the department $7.1 million in funding in 2023 to develop and implement a statewide network of community resource centers.
