What's New

Our 2018 School Supply Drive is on!

Help us stock 200+ backpacks to disperse to kids in need throughout the Twin Cities – and help them feel confident and ready for their school year. 

You can donate via Amazon, or drop off wish list items at our Richfield or Golden Valley locations.

All donations are greatly appreciated and truly help kids start the school year off right! 


“Michael had no long term horizon, didn’t care about anything, was disengaged and had no foundation to start the recovery journey… Today he is a productive senior in HS involved in extra-curricular activities and thinking about college. (Headway) gave us traction, a positive track record of real accomplishments and new beginning.”

Melissa has worked in the human services field since 2008 and joined Headway in November, 2014. Within her role at Headway, Melissa has the opportunity to support first-time parents prenatally until their child is four years old. Melissa incorporates an attachment-based lens, believing that our early relationships can lay the foundation for how we experience ourselves and others. She feels that every family has a unique set of skills and strengths and she hopes to be able to draw from these in her work with families. She feels that building positive relationships, acknowledging cultural and familial values, and using empathy and compassion are key components to the work that she does with families.

Outside of work, Melissa enjoys spending time with family and friends, exploring and trying new activities in her community, painting, and going to the lakes.
