The demographic composition of Eden Prairie has changed in the past decades and people of color now comprise 23.37% of the population, versus 4.08% in 1990. As a way to reach its many constituents, the city employs a “take it to them” approach. For many years, the city has facilitated successful parenting classes providing professionally guided discussions, information, and effective parenting strategies for parents of children ages 3 – 16. Often these programs are held in the community rooms of low-income apartment complexes including Briarhill and Prairie Meadows Apartments where many immigrant populations reside. The city says this type of outreach is well attended, especially if the invitation comes from members of these communities.
