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! 

Testimonials

“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.”
