dianneMinneapolis’ two strongest nonprofit human services, The Family Partnership (formerly Family & Children’s Service) and Reuben Lindh Family Services (RLFS), have officially merged January 1, 2011.

The new organization is called The Family Partnership. Molly Greenman is President and CEO, which was her position prior to the merger and Dianne Haulcy, Executive Director of RLFS, is its Chief Operating Officer.

This merger brings together two organizations with long and strong traditions of creating better futures for children and families living in poverty.

The Family Partnership is a 132-year-old organization whose mission is ‘building strong families, vital communities, and capable children’. Through counseling, education programs, and advocacy, it helps over 20,000 families in need and empowers them to solve problems.

Rueben Lindh Family Services is 41 years old and offers therapeutic preschools, in-home parenting, and other support services for children and families living in extreme poverty.

“Together, we will offer a diverse and comprehensive set of services to support families in their most important role: raising children,” Molly Greenman said. “We changed our name to The Family Partnership intentionally. This merger will help each organization meet their strategic objectives faster with more community partners and enhance our ability to serve all age groups within a greater geographically service area.”

Dianne Haulcy agreed and said, “Program participants will benefit from enhanced multi-cultural competency and greater staff expertise. Children and families will benefit from an organization that brings and leverages greater voice and visibility for families living in poverty.”
