Our History

Roots Wellness Center (formerly known as Minnesota CarePartner) is a holistic, somatically focused, polyvagal-informed, culturally-responsive mental health organization that heals intergenerational trauma by embracing epigenetics and holistic approaches to wellness and cultural recovery.

Roots Wellness Center began in 2013 when it began providing culturally responsive in-home therapy from a social-justice, advocacy lens. Katy Armendariz, founder and transracial adoptee, has transformed her racial and cultural trauma experiences into an organization focused on providing quality mental health services through a cultural, systemic, holistic framework to marginalized communities.

We provide an array of culturally embedded supports, including ARMHS, CTSS, therapy, outpatient treatment for substance use, in-home digital navigation, Be@School case management, and in-home family-based recovery.

Minnesota CarePartner/Roots Recovery is now Roots Wellness Center
