Postponed:  The Empty Bowls event scheduled for Thursday, April 30, has been suspended as we follow the Minnesota Department of Health recommendations to limit large, optional public events in order to slow the potential spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).  We will let you know as soon as a new date is scheduled.

Hola! Updated flyers as our previous one stayed Saturday the 24th instead of the 25th. Thank you for your support in helping families during these times.                                          ENGLISH Esperanza Flier   SOMALI Esperanza Flier  SPANISH Esperanza Flier

Dear Together WE CAN Community,  parents, families, individuals, and communities are feeling the weight of uncertainty, and many are realizing that there are no easy answers. Life. Is. Messy. What we do know, is that we are all in this together. Right now, we are all juggling, balancing, coping, and struggling. We all need the support of our families, friends, and communities. This e-source focuses on what we know works in preventing child abuse and neglect: the Strengthening Families Approach  . It is based on engaging families, programs, and communities in building five key protective factors.

Thank you to our community partners that donated to St. Gert’s.

This need is still open . St. Gertrude’s Long-Term Care Facility would like their staff to switch into scrubs when they arrive at work. When they leave work, they would shower and switch back into street clothes. This procedure would provide greater safety, from the Corona virus, to nursing home residents, staff, and the general public. Two sets of scrubs, at a cost of 50.00 is needed for each staff person. The need is large. St. Gertrude’s has a staff of 300. The total need is 15,000.00. But a donation of 50.00 will secure a set of scrubs for one staff member at St. Gertrude’s Lon Term Care Facility in Shakopee.  To donate please use the following link:   Scrubs for St. Gert’s
