Kindred Family Focus foster care programs serve boys and girls, ages birth through 21, who can benefit from support in a family setting. Each youth's specific needs are carefully assessed. Then they are matched to a foster home that can meet their special needs through an individualized treatment plan.
Independent living programming and training is incorporated for youth, ages 16 and older, who are in foster care. These services help prevent homelessness by preparing youth with the psychological, emotional, and concrete coping skills they will need for self-sufficiency as they transition into adulthood.
Kindred Family Focus is a private, non-profit adoption agency designated by the Minnesota Department of Human Services to license adoptive homes and place youth who are under state or tribal guardianship for the purpose of adoption.
Kindred Family Focus collaborates with counties or tribal agencies to plan for adoption services specific to Minnesota's Waiting Children and families. As an agency under contract with the state, Kindred Family Focus offers adoption services at no cost to families and counties or tribal agencies. The adoption program serving Minnesota Waiting Children is supported by funding through the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
Kindred Family Focus has foster homes in more than half of Minnesota’s 87 counties, so youth can be served closer to their home communities and family. Our programming works to find permanency solutions for youth, and supportive care for families in crisis. If you are thinking about fostering or adopting a child, please contact us today.
