Family Safety Network (FSN)  is a non-profit, tax exempt organization dedicated to providing confidential advocacy, support, and referral services to domestic violence victims and their children.  FSN has been actively working with victims/survivors of domestic violence since 1993, when a group of concerned citizens saw a need for this type of service.  We believe that direct advocacy and education is an important key in breaking the cycle of violence.

 Our Mission is “To help keep families safe.” 

We believe in the importance of family and are committed to the elimination of all forms of violence, that violence is an expression of power and control which ultimately leads to the complete deterioration of family, and that NO one deserves to be hit or threatened.

Our services include:

-Confidential personal and legal advocacy

-Confidential support

-Help in filing court documents such as Orders for Protection and Harrassment Restraining Orders

-Accompaniment to court hearings and other appointments

-Safety Planning

-Women’s weekly support groups

-24 Hour Crisis Line 800-324-8151

-Emergency transportation

-Public presentations for community education

-Information and referral services

Family Safety Network is expanding its services to cover Hubbard, Clearwater, and Cass Counties. 

Headwaters Intervention Center in Park Rapids and Family Crisis Center in Bagley will now be Family Safety Network, serving Cass, Clearwater and Hubbard.

Child care assistance is available to parents who are receiving assistance under the Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) and parents whose income is at or below 175% of the Federal Poverty guideline and are in an approved activity. It is important for parents to know their child is well-cared for while they are at work, looking for work, obtaining training or going to school in order to secure employment. Application is required to have eligibility determined. CCAP may not cover all child care costs. Parental amounts depend on the family’s income, the number of people in the family, and how much the child care provider charges. The goal is to assist the family to maintain employment and gain self-sufficiency.

CHILD SUPPORT
Every child needs financial and emotional support and every child has the right to support from both parents. Minnesota’s child support program benefits children by enforcing parental responsibility for child support.
Either parent of a child may apply or qualify for certain support services from the Child Support Unit. Depending on the circumstances associated with the case, threre may be fees assessed for collection unless the applicant receives public assistance (Minnesota Family Investment Program, Medical Assistance, MinnesotaCare, or Childcare Assistance.)
