Explore Your Truth, Find Your Voice at the Twin Cities Men's Center.
Alert: Due to severe weather Choosing Healthy Sexual Boundaries is cancelling their meeting, Saturday January 18, 2020. Thanks for understanding.
Since 1973, men have been discovering the Twin Cities Men's Center to find emotional support from other men — in all of life's transformation situations: discovering who I am and what I want; experiencing the end of a marriage or a relationship breakup; exploring sexuality; learning about father-son relationships; facing retirement; re-entering society after a time-out in prison; managing expression of anger, etc.
An educational non-profit, TCMC has produced 7 Midwest Regional Men's Conferences, hundreds of workshops on a myriad variety of subjects, and is the primary clearinghouse for Men's Resources in the Twin Cities.
