Therapeutic Foster Care

Foster Care 2017, 659px wide

In 2015, over 12,000 children in Minnesota were placed in temporary care with foster families.

The LSS Therapeutic Foster Care program, along with the dozens of families that open their hearts and homes, offers children in transition a safe and supportive temporary home in which to live and grow.

The goal of LSS Therapeutic Foster Care is to return the child to his or her home or community. 

While the child is in foster care, LSS will help to:

  • Develop support systems for the family
  • Improve relationships with the school
  • Support the healthy development of the child

Caring foster parents are needed to support children in transition

While in foster care, these children are cared for by loving, nurturing families that were able to provide the children with the support and structure they needed to learn and grow.
