The Department of Social Services Foster Care Program provides services and programs aimed at achieving the safety and stability of children, youth, and families in Fond du Lac County.  The overall goal of this unit is for all children in this county to have a safe, permanent home. 

The mission of the Fond du Lac Human Services Division is to elevate the health and social well-being of American Indian people living in the service area through the provision of culturally appropriate services, research, education, and employment opportunities.

There is a need for foster parents who can care for children on a short-term and long-term basis.  Foster parents care for children while the child’s parents make improvements in their situation so the children can be returned home.  We have a significant need for families able to care for sibling groups of three or more and for teens.

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.
