Minnetonka Family Collaborative (MFC)

The Minnetonka Family Collaborative (MFC) was established in 2005 to help build a healthy community for the children and youth who attend the Minnetonka Public School District.

Our Mission

The mission of the Minnetonka Family Collaborative is to support and develop the well-being of all youth and families in the Minnetonka School District in partnership with the community.

Our Vision

To be the best and most accessible intersection of needs and resources that leads to thriving youth and families in the Minnetonka School District.

Collaborative Efforts

Minnetonka Family Collaborative partners gather throughout the school year to share information regarding programs, community resources, and look for opportunities to support families and other opportunities to help improve the community.

We foster collaborative processes and bring the perspectives, information and resources of various partners and constituencies to create solutions to service gaps, service coordination and un-met needs of families in the community.

Funding Source

The Collaborative is federally funded through the Local Collaborative Time Study (LCTS). These funds have been designated by state statue for use in expansion of early intervention and prevention services in Minnesota communities. The funds are distributed through the Department of Human Services and Public Health.


The Minnetonka Family Collaborative is governed by a set of bylaws developed by MFC Community Partners. Download the bylaws (PDF).
