Mental health issues, homelessness, substance use disorders, and other issues marginalized populations experience can result in suffering in isolation rather than seeking care, and children being removed from their homes. Minnesota CarePartner designed our programs to address such barriers to equitable care. We do this by providing services that view individuals and families within their environmental contexts and through the lens of historical trauma and current oppressions.
Our goal is to reduce the disparities of low-income families of color in the behavioral healthcare system and keep families together. We specialize in in-home and community-based services for individuals and families who cannot make it to a clinic due to physical, mental, social, financial, and/or transportation barriers. We also offer outpatient substance use disorder treatment and therapy at our offices for those who prefer to meet outside of their home.
Our Parent Community Support Program seeks to decolonize and deconstruct the Westernized lens through which most mainstream services are provided. These services are holistic, free and do not require insurance. There is no diagnosing or pathologizing, just culturally responsive and holistic supports and advocacy, driven by the person being served. Services are available in Hennepin and Ramsey counties. All services provided in the home, community and/or virtually.
Ramsey County CSP has current openings for parent mentoring, family nutrition, doula and lactation services.
