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! 


“I've worked with Headway for over ten years and the quality of the services they provide to youth and their family has been excellent. The staff genuinely care about their clients and want them to be successful…they hold their young clients accountable for their behavior.

Michelle joined Headway as an intern in August. 2013 and after receiving her license in May, 2014, she joined Headway as a team member.  She has been working in the human services field since 2012. She studied at the University of St. Thomas and St. Catherine University.  Through her work as a school-based therapist, she has been witness to the positive impact that support and therapeutic relationships can have on children's mental health.  “I hope to offer all the students that enter my office hope; even when their family struggles, school burdens, and relationship issues seem to be overbearing for them,” she says.

In her spare time, Michelle loves to spend time with her family and friends—especially her young nephew. She also enjoys being outdoors, running, boating, traveling, cooking, and going to concerts and movies.
