Child Foster Care

Initial Licensing Forms

County Foster Homes
Otter Tail County Human Services is responsible for the licensing of foster homes located in the county. Additional foster homes are always needed, particularly homes that are able to effectively parent teenagers.
Foster Parent Responsibilities
Foster parents provide a temporary home for children when they cannot remain in their own home. Care is given until their own parents can resume this responsibility or until a permanent plan is made with relative or adoptive parents. Foster parents need to be caring and stable, as they will be helping children through a difficult time in their lives.Foster parents must be able to provide for their own family’s financial needs, be good listeners, flexible, have a good sense of humor and work well with others in a team effort. Foster parents receive a financial reimbursement to care for the needs of children.
