The Family Partnership (Minneapolis, MN)
July 26th, 2021
The Family Partnership works to remove barriers and clear the path for success for those who have experienced deep poverty and trauma by anticipating and addressing the evolving needs of vulnerable families and individuals.
CSC’s Minneapolis team donated two washers and dryers, giving The Family Partnership the ability to offer laundry services to the children and families served by their multicultural therapeutic preschool and PRIDE (Promoting Recovery, Independence, Dignity, and Equality) program serving survivors of sex trafficking.
A washer and dryer on-site at the preschool helped bridge the gap to clean clothes for families experiencing barriers. For PRIDE participants, housing precarity and lack of stability make it difficult for them to have consistent laundry access, especially for those who experience chronic homelessness. By removing the stressor of having no clean clothes, survivors can focus more on healing and recovery.
“Having clean clothes helps you raise your head high despite your circumstances,” said a PRIDE Program member.
