Adult Foster Care

Adult foster care is a home setting in the community for adults who are unable to live independently due to physical, emotional, developmental, or mental health impairments. Residents receive meals, support, supervision, and some assistance with personal care and living skills as needed.

Goodhue County Health & Human Services licenses, monitors, and supports adult foster homes. Goodhue County Health & Human Services can only license homes which are located in Goodhue County.

Become Licensed

Goodhue County Social Services requires anyone interested in becoming a foster parent to attend an orientation session.  Orientation will provide you with an overview of the foster care program along with information on the licensing and placement procedures. Application packets are available at orientation. Orientation will be provided twice yearly. 

If you live outside of Goodhue County, contact your local department of social services for licensing information.
