“This is an exciting time for both of our agencies as we combine our wealth of knowledge and ability to provide even more specialized services to our clients and the community,” said Arba-Della Beck, president of FamilyMeans. “FamilyMeans has provided an array of mental health and counseling services since we opened our doors in 1963. The Center for Grief, Loss & Transition brings a skill set with a focus to help people work through complicated grief, loss and trauma. Together, our services will be stronger and a great asset for people seeking care.” 

In addition to mental health services, FamilyMeans offers programs in financial and bankruptcy services, caregiver support and respite, employee assistance and youth development in the communities of Landfall and Cimarron (located in Lake Elmo). 

FamilyMeans is comprised of 55 employees and the Center for Grief, Loss & Transition adds another 14 employees to the combined staff. 

Although the agencies are now one organization, the Center for Grief, Loss & Transition will keep its name, which is well-recognized in the community. As part of FamilyMeans, the Center for Grief, Loss and Transition will operate as one of the agency’s programs.
