Wright County seeking foster homes

WRIGHT COUNTY, MN – Wright County Health and Human Services is seeking foster homes, according to a press release shared by the Wright County Sheriff’s Office.

“Children enter foster care due to significant life factors often including abuse or neglect,” according to the press release. “This is an extremely difficult time for children. They are struggling and need extra support. The overall goal of foster care is to provide children with a temporary, stable, and caring family setting until they are reunited with their family or until a permanency plan is established for them.”

Wright County is especially in need of families who will support children over age 12, as well as families willing to care for children who have significant emotional or behavioral challenges.

Wright County Health and Human Services provides year-round training and support to foster parents.

“In order to preserve children’s educational stability, friendships, and support network, Wright County strives to keep children in their home communities,” according to the press release. “Unfortunately, this task is not possible if we do not have foster homes in each of our cities.”

Anyone interested in providing a safe and nurturing home for children by becoming a foster parent is encouraged to contact Marisa Ferguson at Marisa.ferguson@co.wright.mn.us or (763) 682-7484.
