Please help with adoptive homes
The Leech Lake Child Welfare Department is in dire need of adoptive homes for children who need a permanent loving home. We have several sibling groups waiting for a family to call their own. If you have a lot of love, patience and room in your home and heart for a child, please call or stop in for more information.
One sibling group will be adopted to a non-native family if a native family is not identified and the process started within the next 30 days. These children have been in foster care for almost four years and have not had much cultural exposure. We really need your help.
If you know of anyone who might be interested in adoption or learning more about adoption and our waiting children, please call or stop by the Leech Lake Child Welfare office. Our office is at 6035 161st St. NW, across from the Facility Center. Our toll-free number is (866) 252-5665 or local (218) 335-8270. Ask to speak to the adoption specialist.
The basic requirements for becoming an adoptive home are that you must be over age 21, enrolled or eligible for enrollment in a federally recognized tribe, and can pass background checks. First-generation descendents may also apply and depending on the circumstances, our Child Welfare Commission may approve your application.
Please contact me if you are interested or would like more information.
