Requirements to become a foster parent

There are several support services available for foster parents in Minnesota. Let's take a look at what's available:

Support Payments

Minnesotan foster parents receive a monthly basic payment to help with the care costs of the foster child. Payments vary depending on the child's age and circumstances. They start at $650 per month.

In some circumstances, foster parents can also receive a difficulty of care supplemental monthly rate. These payments help support children with physical and mental difficulties and can be up to $1,500 per month.

Medical and Dental Coverage

In Minnesota, foster children receive Medicaid coverage for their medical and dental needs.

The foster parents are responsible for arranging the child's medical care and must attend all necessary appointments to maintain their health and well-being.

Training and Support Groups

There are plenty of support groups and resources available for foster parents in Minnesota. These services offer ongoing support and an opportunity to share experiences with other people in the same situation as you.

Additional training can also help you be the best caregiver possible for your foster kid.

As an educator working with at risk youth I found EVOLVE to be very trauma informed.

Evolve did an amazing job at preparing us for our adoption journey. From applying to the program, taking education classes, home study. To being matched, placing, ICPC, finalization; they made it so smooth for us. With Evolve, you aren’t another case file. You truly do matter to the staff, and we couldn’t have imagined not working with them. Our daughter was born in June of 2020 and we finalized in December of that year. Having a baby in the middle of a pandemic, working with ICPC , navigating the courts for finalization, amended birth certificate, obtaining a SSN for her was so confusing. Evolve supported us every step of the way❤️

Severely lacking in post placement rapport and care especially for birth parents even after the rebranding from HOPE adoption.
