As a steadying force and safety net for teen parents, our Bright Beginnings program equips two generations at once, setting up both new parents and their kids for long-term success.
Join us Monday, November 5, from 5:30-7:30pm at Surly Brewing Co. for a free fundraising event with food, music, beer, cash bar, games and a live auction. There will be live music from Noisy Withdrawal, the rockin’ lawyer band of sponsor Fredrikson & Byron.

Bundles of Love
Community Partner of the Year
Bundles of Love provides handmade items for infants in our programs. As a receiving organization, we make a request for baby bundles of love each month and the Burnsville chapter delivers! The families we serve had 205 babies in 2017. This partnership enables us to provide more Minnesotan parents, especially teen moms, with the supplies they need to care for their newborns.
Intern of the Year
CaPrice started her internship in January while earning her Human Services degree at Metropolitan State University. She spent her time supporting parents who come to visit their children at our centers. For the majority of parents we work with, this is the only opportunity they have to spend time playing and bonding with their children. CaPrice quickly moved from her role as an intern to a staff member at FamilyWise. More About CaPrice
