Pathways to Prosperity and Well-Being is a pilot program that brings substantive changes to every level of the human service system, from policy formulation, to management and supervision, to practice with families. In this webinar, staff from Olmsted and Dakota Counties in Minnesota and a researcher from the Future Services Institute at the University of Minnesota will discuss the design and initial implementation of the initiative and what they’ve learned so far.

Pathways to Prosperity and Well-Being is a pilot program based in Olmsted and Dakota Counties in Minnesota in partnership with the Future Services Institute at the University of Minnesota.



Human services systems address complex needs, but historically, community-based programs and services have been constructed in siloes. New integrated services can lead to better outcomes, meeting the individualized needs of families.



Pathways to Prosperity and Well-Being starts by viewing all work through the lens of social determinants of health and wellness in order to bring about increased self-sufficiency and stability.



Pathways to Prosperity and Well-Being practice models are based on a redesign of service delivery and a redesign of public assistance benefits.



A flexible benefit set will change the way benefits are offered by allowing families to make use of benefits in a way that fits their needs.
