History

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.
