Ramsey County Foster Care helps provide temporary homes for children whose parents or guardians cannot take care of them. When kids cannot live with someone they know, they are matched with a licensed foster care provider.
The goal of foster care is to keep children safe while supporting families’ efforts to reunite. Most children who enter foster care return to their families.
Foster parents come from backgrounds as diverse as the children they care for and make a difference every day. The biggest reward is seeing the children develop and grow.
