FOSTER THE LOVE MINNESOTA'S MISSION IS TO SUPPORT AND SERVE THE FOSTER COMMUNITY OF MINNESOTA.
THE CHALLENGES AND JOYS OF FOSTER CARE, REUNIFICATION, AND ADOPTION ARE MANY.
WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU, WHEREVER YOU ARE IN THAT JOURNEY.
The main way we do this is facilitating placement bag drives for children entering foster care.
When children are removed from their homes, it is often quickly and there is little to no time to grab any belongings.

We want to provide them with a backpack that is filled with items that are both practical and let them know they are
important and not forgotten in the midst of this difficult journey.
Who We Are
My story has given me a passion for the safety, love, and care of little ones and others who are the most vulnerable among us. I am a nurse working in Minneapolis, as well as a licensed foster care provider in Hennepin County.
My sister, Kelly Hughes, started the Foster Love Project in Pittsburgh, PA after seeing the need of organizations like this after being a foster parent for several years. She is one of the inspirations behind Foster the Love Minnesota!
We are [literally] sister organizations. =)
