Kathy Wyman, a Kindred Family Focus foster parent who has provided more than 50 years of care for children, was awarded the Minnesota Region 3 Outstanding Child Foster Care award from the Minnesota Social Service Association (MSSA) on Oct. 20, 2018.

To commit 50 years of her life helping others is a life accomplishment that is rightly recognized and celebrated.”
