Approach & Services

Compassionate, integrated care rebuilds lives

Our evidence-based integrated-care approach reaffirms each man’s dignity and seeks to instill the self-discipline and behaviors that are a prerequisite to self-sufficiency. By building Better Futures Minnesota into a work-training program and a profit-generating employer—through our reuse warehouse and supervised work crews that specialize in building deconstruction, building maintenance, appliance recycling, and janitorial services—we seek to demonstrate creative ways to place hard-to-employ men on a pathway to independence.
For far too long, current systems and practices have produced unacceptable, expensive outcomes and left men wanting to change out of the opportunity to do so. We believe our participants, Minnesota taxpayers, and our communities deserve much better results.
