It takes a village to rebuild a life. We’re here to help get you on the path to success.

Better Futures Minnesota isn’t a reentry program. We’re a social enterprise dedicated to rebuilding lives through housing stability, workforce development, health and family engagement, and compassionate, trauma-informed care and coaching supports that give men the skills and relationships they need to succeed.

We believe change is a collaborative exercise. A coaching framework rooted in compassion, honesty, vulnerability, and a willingness to learn is essential for building a better future, as is a willingness to commit to change and growth.

Are you or someone you know ready to begin building a better future for yourself, your family, and your community?

As a participant in Better Futures, success first depends on four commitments:

  1. Commitment to the whole team. You are committed to yourself and the entire team working with you to build a healthier, happier life.
  2. Commitment to change, and being compassionate and patient with that change along the way.
  3. Commitment to safety, including safe housing and self care.
  4. Commitment to work, and being ready, willing, and able to do it every day.
