About the Event

Are you interested in learning more about becoming a foster parent but you're not ready to reach out to a licensing agency?

Do you have questions you'd like to ask but aren't sure who to connect with?

Do you simply want to hear more about what it's like to be a foster family - positive and negative experiences, success stories and heartache, the good and bad?

Come to Barley & Vine to meet experienced Foster Parents and ask them questions like:

  • What's the difference between licensing with your county versus a private agency?
  • Can I work full-time and foster?
  • What if I get "too attached"?
  • Is it okay to have a relationship with the birth parents?
  • How do you decide what age children are right for your family? 
  • What support is available to my family if we decide to foster?
  • I can't foster right now but I still want to help – how do I do that? 

These are all just a small sample of questions we've asked ourselves and we are here to answer them for you.

Limited space available so be sure to register! We're looking forward to connecting - no strings attached!

Optional: Bring a Target, Walmart, or Amazon gift card to be donated to Foster Together MN's outreach programs. 

A special thank you to Barley & Vine for hosting this event and providing appetizers during the event. If you would like to stay afterwards for dinner and enjoy their full menu, we recommend making a reservation.

Due to the limited space and topic of discussion, we kindly ask that children stay home with another caregiver.
