LivingLinks is a private, non-profit corporation providing residential services to people with developmental disabilities in the Mankato area since 1970.

We have 70 employees supporting 32 individuals through a variety of services including group homes and individual programs.


LivingLinks has been serving people with special needs in the Mankato/North Mankato area since 1970. The company was formed by people from a local church who were passionate about their goal of providing meaningful services to underserved populations in the Mankato area. They discovered that there was a great need for services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and put all their efforts and resources into being an innovative, advocacy-oriented provider.

We operated under the name Christian Concern from 1970 until June 2007 when we changed our name to LivingLinks.

In November 2017, we merged with Harry Meyering Center in Mankato. We relocated to the Harry Meyering main office located at 109 Homestead Road and operate under the Harry Meyering name.
