Child Foster Care
Foster families provide homes for children whose families are unable or unwilling
to care for them. The temporary and complex nature of foster care places special
demands on foster parents. They are asked to take someone else's child into
their home, care for the child and treat the child as a member of their family.
The Anoka County Child Foster Care Program provides the necessary support and training
to enable foster parents to provide daily care and supervision for foster children.
Child foster care providers must meet licensing requirements.
