About Us

Care in Action Minnesota is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on improving the quality of life for children who have experienced abuse and neglect, and preventing maltreatment. Care in Action seeks to accomplish this by providing community education and developing partnerships between faith-based communities and county Child Protection Services. Modeled after the HALOS (Helping and Lending Outreach Support) organization in Charleston, S.C., Care in Action began its efforts in Washington County, Minn. in 2005. Care in Action teams faith-based communities, individuals, civic groups and businesses with child protection case managers to provide resources for children and families who have experienced abuse and neglect.
