Help support HCI's efforts to create a community where ALL youth thrive!

HCI strives to make Rice County a place where youth want to grow up, live, work, and give back to the community.

We collaborate on 25+ initiatives in Northfield and Faribault that benefit youth and families – innovative programs like Growing Up Healthy, Youth on Boards, TORCH and RISE, and the Northfield Community College Collaborative.

Help support us as we work to support others! Your tax-deductible donation can make a difference and leave a legacy that will make the health and well-being of our children our first priority both today and tomorrow.

Here are a few of HCI’s success stories from 2020-21:

  • We engaged 2,423 youth and 482 adults in programming at three HCI-supported full-service community schools: Greenvale Park Elementary in Northfield, and Jefferson Elementary and Faribault Middle School in Faribault

  • We supported 93 high school students serving on 31 different board and commissions through Northfield Youth on Boards and are launching Faribault Youth on Boards in fall 2021

  • We distributed more than 200,000 pounds of food to families in need during the pandemic, through the partnership of Growing Up Healthy and the Community Action Center

HCI builds bridges between youth-serving organizations and pulls partners together to look strategically at community issues and solutions. Learn more at:
