Foster Care

Some years ago, we opened our home to kids in crisis and became a foster home. It’s a challenging thing to do but rewarding. You provide an opportunity for a child to have a safe, secure and stable home to stay during a family crisis or a refuge from an abusive home. The need is great. Right now, there are kids who are waiting for a safe place in which to land.

If you think you are interested in learning more about fostering and you live in Rice County, Minnesota, you can email Ruth Smith at Rice County Social Services.

Rice County Social Services is offering a training opportunity on the topic of sex offender awareness. The training will be held at the Government Services Building, 320 NW 3rd Street, Faribault, Minnesota on Thursday, September 30th at 7:00 p.m. If you would like to register for this training, contact Ruth Smith at Rice County Social Services.
