Welcome to the Family!
We have been committed to standing by the side of our neighbors since 1978. We’ve done this by working together with partners, individuals, businesses, organizations, and faith communities who are passionate about their communities.
Over the past four decades, we’ve adapted to the needs of the communities we serve in the City of Forest Lake; Carlton, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, and Pine Counties in Minnesota and Polk County in Wisconsin.
Family Pathways’ support services provides healthy food access, domestic and sexual violence prevention and victim services, supervised visitation, and services for older adults and caregivers.

Family Pathways’ Mission:
Family Pathways works alongside people to enhance lives through a continuum of essential services and—together with community—champion positive social change.
Family Pathways’ Vision:
Every voice. Every possibility. Every day.
A Family Pathways Commitment:
For over 40 years, Family Pathways has dedicated resources and supports to the service region. Though our mission statement has evolved over time, one thing has remained true: equality for all needs to be top priority.
Our commitment to combat racism and grow towards change and inclusion, means we must be more than just words, more than just a statement. Our actions must reflect the reality that we cannot just return to old injustices. We must make constant efforts to assure that our friends, family, and neighbors are no longer oppressed, marginalized, or forgotten.
The Family Pathways Board of Directors, as well as the employees, have discussed additional ways our organization can contribute to the positive social changes that we are dedicated to make. United, we can truly adhere to our mission to work alongside people to enhance lives through a continuum of essential services and – together with community, champion positive social change.
