Foster parents needed
According to the Minnesota Department of Human Services, the number of children in the state’s foster care system has grown – from 11,500 in 2013 to 16,500 in 2018 – and there is a greater need than ever for foster parents to provide temporary, critical care to children in crisis.
Many people who might not think they qualify to be foster parents are actually eligible. Minnesotans considering becoming a foster parent can learn more during Foster Care Month in May. Info: https://mn.gov/dhs/people-we-serve/children-and-families/services/foster-care/.
