First, attend an information session where you will learn about foster care options and their requirements. This will help you decide if you are ready to take the next steps toward becoming a licensed foster parent.
Information meetings are for families wanting to foster or adopt children unrelated to them. If you are interested in fostering or adopting a child you already know, please call 612-348-5437 and select option 1.
After you attend an information session and return all the required paperwork, you will be assigned an intake worker. Your intake worker will let you know which training courses you must complete.
