At Nexus Family Healing, we believe every child is worth it — and every family matters. And we know that each time we help a child change the course of his or her life, we create the potential for healthier families, stronger communities, and a better world.
It’s why we’re here, it’s why you can trust us, and it’s why we’re committed to helping even the most challenging situations.
Using an innovative and customized approach, we provide outpatient therapy, residential treatment, and foster care to help children suffering from emotional and behavioral health issues—and the families who love them.
Changing the course of a child’s life by stabilizing families and strengthening mental health.
Healing the past. Breaking the cycle. Changing the future.
And, we execute on these values with synergy and grit.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Over the last 45 years, Nexus has helped thousands of children find individualized paths to emotional, mental and behavioral health. We create a customized plan for each child and family—and provide the exact combination of support services needed to put that plan into action. Our innovative personalized approach helps heal trauma, break cycles of harm, and restore hope to families when all seems lost.
What began in 1972 as a single program for adolescent males in Minnetonka, Minnesota, has grown into a network of eight locations in four states. We are nationally recognized as a progressive leader in youth and family healing, and we’re more committed than ever to continue this work.
Today, Nexus is a nonprofit, 501(C)(3) organization, headquartered in Plymouth, Minnesota, serving thousands of youth and families each year. We provide community-based mental health services, foster care and adoption services, and residential treatment programs across four states.
Nexus Family Healing services are located in Illinois, Minnesota, Maryland and North Dakota.
