PACT (Putting All Communities Together) for Families Collaborative is a Children’s Mental Health and Family Services collaborative, serving children and families in Kandiyohi, McLeod, Meeker, Renville, and Yellow Medicine counties and the Upper Sioux Community in west-central Minnesota. 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. 

PACT for Families Collaborative Vision:

The PACT for Families Collaborative has a vision of healthy and safe communities where individuals, families, and children care about and support each other.  

This is official notice that PACT for Families intends to apply for a 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant on behalf of the following participating school districts: Cedar Mountain Schools, Renville County West Public Schools, Yellow Medicine East Schools, and DREAM Technical Academy. These resources are intended to be used in order to provide a wide range of high-quality enrichment opportunities designed to complement the regular academic program of participating students during those times when school is not in session, including before school, after school, evenings, school release days, and summer.
