Headway is looking for team members who want to make a dynamic and lasting impact in their communities.  We are a passionate and focused non-profit making a difference in the lives of over 18,000 families and individuals throughout the Twin Cites metro area each year.  We pride ourselves on bringing innovative, connected solutions to mental health challenges while continually learning new and better ways to provide care.  Headway, then called Storefront, was founded in 1970 by a group of parents who wanted to help kids and families in crisis in their communities. Their mission, still true today, was to transform lives by providing hope, healing and empowerment through treatment, intervention and education.  Passion, Focus, Innovation, Learning and Connectedness define who we are and what we look for in people joining our team.
