Foster One South Dakota

South Dakota First Lady Linda Daugaard

First Lady Linda Daugaard

Thank you for your time and interest in becoming a South Dakota foster parent. Helping fill the need for foster families in South Dakota is something that both the Governor and I are very passionate about. 

As a former teacher and librarian, and as a mother of three and a grandmother of two, I know how important it is to provide children with unconditional support, guidance and love. These are the keys to helping children reach their full potential and find success in life. 

Dedicated foster parents provide opportunities for youth to stay connected with their family, friends, culture, tribe, school and community. They also provide a home away from home for children while their families work through difficult situations. 

Right now, we have children in South Dakota communities waiting for someone to open their home and their hearts. Fostering one child - or multiple children - will change their lives and yours.
