Program Description

AEOA’s Community Resource Hub connects families with local, county, and regional resources and assists families in learning how to use the Help Me Connect and Bridge to Benefits websites. The Northeastern Minnesota Community Implementation Hub Collaborative is a pilot involving six locally based organizations implementing the collaborative in six counties and four Tribal Nations in Northeastern Minnesota.

In order to thrive, all young families need support. Families who do not have abundant social and economic opportunities face bigger challenges in providing a strong start in life for their little ones. A helping hand to get connected with services that boost well-being for their children and parents can make all the difference.
