About Family Development

We provide support to families and family-serving organizations in times of challenge and opportunity.

What We Do

The Extension Center for Family Development strengthens and empowers Minnesota families by working directly with families and the professionals that serve them. We draw on the knowledge and resources of the University of Minnesota to help families reach their full potential. Given our connections throughout every county in Minnesota, we are uniquely qualified to help deliver organizations’ programs and reach families where they live, work, and play.
