Transforming lives, Transforming systems.

At Better Futures Minnesota, we are more than a nonprofit providing a single service. We are a workforce development program working to build healthy communities for more Minnesotans by operating at the intersection of racial, social, economic, and environmental justice.

We envision a future where men who want to build a better life for themselves, can. A future where men, predominantly African American, returning from prison have the supports they need to stay out of prison. A future where men who want to succeed aren’t locked out of opportunities, but they have access to the fundamentals everyone needs to build a healthy, happy life for themselves and their family.
