Rebuilding Lives

Tri-CAP’s Rebuilding Lives program is open for enrollments!


We serve households in our nine-county service area experiencing loss of income due to death or disability of a spouse, divorce or separation.  If you have been responsible for caregiving of home and children and now lost income due to one of the reasons mentioned, you may be eligible for our supportive services.  We are here to help you through this difficult life transition with one-to one support that meets your household’s unique needs.

To speak with a self-sufficiency counselor about eligibility, please call us at 320.251.1612.

Rebuilding Lives (MN Family Resiliency Partnership-formerly the MN Displaced Homemaker Program) 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.
