Make a Plan, Minnesota

The Minnesota Department of Human Services urges all Minnesotans who are responsible for the care of a child to make a plan now for alternate short-term care for their children in the event parents or guardians become ill.

To support families in this process, they’ve developed Make a Plan, Minnesotawhich guides families through a process to identify possible caregivers, gather vital family and child information, and share their plan with others.

Please share this information with families that you work with, or with partner organizations in your network that work with families to support them in planning, if appropriate. Translation of these documents into Spanish, Hmong and Somali will be coming soon!
