Mille Lacs County Community and Veterans Services provides all preliminary training to become a foster parent. On-going training is also provided through a variety of resources. Foster families are required to obtain 12 hours of training per year for the first 5 years of licensure. Formal training and experience in working with people (child or adult) is always a benefit. Anyone interested in becoming a foster parent should be open and willing to learn new skills and apply them within the foster care environment.
Call Community and Veterans Services at 320-983-8208 for more information.
