Explore Your Truth, Find Your Voice at the Twin Cities Men's Center.
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.

In Memorium: Randy Genrich
On August 7, 2018 we lost a well-known member of The Twin Cities Men's Center, Randy Genrich. He was active for many years in various capacities from volunteer to facilitator to mentor. Perhaps best known, he served as our long-time office manager. For many men, Randy was the face of TCMC. On behalf of the TCMC, we thank Randy for all his years of service. He will be truely missed.
In consolation for our shared grief,
In sweetness for a life of loving service,
In solidarity for the realization of men's healing,
and making the world a place of beauty and justice.
