It was established as PACT 4 Families in 1993 as a four-county collaborative and became a five-county collaborative on January 1, 2011 with the addition of McLeod County.
The collaborative is a unique organization developed by its many partners to fill gaps in services and reduce duplication. Members include: county social service, public health, and corrections agencies; school districts; mental health providers; and other child-serving agencies. PACT for Families and its partners are dedicated to changing systems to be more prevention focused and family friendly.
