To our valued clients and communities in the greater Pelican Rapids area,

Community and Life Services (CLS) is proud to serve people in our area. Our mission is to break down barriers to success with financial, physical, and emotional health services to the community. As part of this region’s provider base, we believe you should be informed of our current circumstances.

Our services have been largely underwritten by numerous grants as well as service contracts with other providers, and we anticipate these will continue. 

Grants aren’t guaranteed and aren’t always announced on schedule. Also, the full amounts requested are not always awarded. We are experiencing these realities and, as a result, our current operating funds are being depleted. The Board of Directors of CLS has made the difficult, but necessary, decision to furlough our great staff and discontinue services until we hear about impending grants. 

We feel it is better that you are aware of what is presently occurring and what we believe the future will hold.

Thank you for the support that we receive from so many. We look forward to our next chapter of service.

Board of Directors
