Foster Care & Adoption Orientation

(View All Foster Care & Adoption Orientations Events)

March 23, 2020

A native american couple smile with their foster kids, a brother who is in first grade and his toddler sister.

For Minnesota residents. This is one of two steps to get started fostering or adopting from Minnesota foster care.

We welcome you to attend this free meeting to learn about fostering and adopting children from within the Minnesota foster care system. This provides an overview of the process and addresses details such as children served, timelines, fees (spoiler: there are practically none), licensing requirements, etc.

We host one online and one in-person orientation each month—this event will take place via an online webinar. You can join the online webinars from wherever you are. You will receive a link to complete your webinar registration within two days of registering on this site.

Note: Along with completing this two-hour orientation, you will also need to complete a two-day Foster Care & Adoption Class. Many families find it helpful to attend this orientation first because it answers many questions you may have about the process, but you can attend either class first.

If you have questions, please contact 651.255.2241 or fcaeducation@chlss.org.
