First Children's Finance is a non-profit Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) that provides financial and business development assistance to childcare businesses serving low and moderate-income families. FCF’s Minnesota team is co-located in our national headquarters in Minneapolis, MN. As the oldest state office, the Minnesota team has developed alongside the national vision for our organization. Programs and services have been continuously been offered across Minnesota since our founding in 1991.
Today, Minnesota’s team members can be found in every region of the state, serving childcare business clients and communities in rural areas, population centers, and the Twin Cities metro area. Although the need for excellent child care exists in every community, the Minnesota team recognizes the need for a diversity of approaches to serve rural childcare businesses, BIPOC entrepreneurs, and community partners.
