Traditional Foster Care

In Traditional Foster Care, the foster parents will serve as the support system for any children in their care. They will ensure that the children remain connected to their community, peers, and birth families.  The foster care providers will protect the child’s security, development, health, and identity until that child can either be reunified with their birth family, or placed into a family through adoption.

Traditional Foster Care Costs

Our foster care programs have no fees associated with them. All the training, licensing, and paperwork for the programs are covered. We also provide free assistance with all steps of the process, whether you need help filling out forms or have questions about anything. We’re here to help you out.

Foster Care Provider Requirements

Foster parents may come from many walks of life.  They are compassionate and could be married or single, home owners or renters, employed or retired, parenting or not parenting. Foster parents must:

  • Reside in the state of Minnesota
  • Be 21 years or older
  • Complete the full MN DHS Foster Care application
  • Pass a criminal background check for all household members over age 13
  • Complete a full Foster Care Home Study Assessment
