Foster care providers often report that the most important and useful support they have found is that of other foster care providers. Being able to connect with others who are in similar situations is very important.
Anoka County facilitates 2 “Fostering Connections” Meet Ups every month, one on a weekday morning and one on a weekday evening. These groups are a time for you to meet and connect with other providers, as well as time for children to meet and connect. Childcare for ages 0-18 and snacks or a meal are provided at every meet-up, please bring your own drinks. Providers receive emails every month with information about up-coming meetings.
