Making Region 5 a Better Place

If you live or work in Region 5, you’ve probably benefited from one of our programs—and may not even be aware of it. Sourcewell's services and support span across many important aspects of life in central Minnesota including education, family child care, emergency services, and much more.

We are humbled to be at your service, and honored by the opportunity.

We want to help you become a hero in your community at our Region 5 Summit. We’ll explain how to take advantage of our rebate and contract purchasing programs, along with special presentations such as “Creating a Respectful Workplace” and “Building a Positive School Culture.” If you work for a school district, government entity, nonprofit organization, or belong to a tribe in Region 5—the R5 Summit is for you!

Find out how we’re helping strategic partners throughout Region 5 in our Well Connected magazine.
