Become a foster parent

Potential foster parents need to be licensed and approved, and Minnesota requires foster parents to meet requirements prior to placing a child in your home. Learn the steps to become a foster parent in Minnesota. If you are related to your potential foster child, your county agency can place a child with you if you are unlicensed as long as you quickly complete the licensing process and meet the required state standards.
