Rebuilding Lives

Rebuilding Lives is a self-sufficiency program for individuals who were homemakers and now lack income due to divorce, separation, the death or disability of a spouse or partner, or loss of public assistance.

Through a series of workshops, one-to-one planning and group participation, members gain the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to become more self-sufficient.

Our objective is to help you prepare for a competitive job market.


If you were:

A homemaker (male or female) who was taking care of your own home and family
you were dependent on the income of a spouse, partner, other family member or public assistance for two or more years
you are no longer supported by that income due to divorce, separation, the death or disability of the source of income, or loss of public assistance
you are having difficulty obtaining employment adequate to support yourself,
you may be eligible for Rebuilding Lives.

Rebuilding Lives can help you:

  • Explore career, life and education options
  • Identify individual strengths
  • Learn to manage stress and anger
  • Clarify and establish goals
  • Strengthen communication skills

The Rebuilding Lives program is funded through the Minnesota Displaced Homemaker Program (DHP) and serves Benton, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Kandiyohi, Pine, Stearns, Sherburne and Wright counties. Services are free to those who qualify.
