Beltrami County Social Services


Beltrami County Health and Human Services adoption program primarily works with children who have been involved with the child protection system.  Our initial goal is to reunify children with their biological parents.  In the event that this does not/cannot occur and there are no relatives who are able to make a long term commitment to the child(ren), the parents’ rights to the child(ren) are terminated and the child(ren) becomes a State Ward.  The agency then seeks out a permanent family for the child(ren) through adoption.  It is our goal to match the child(ren) with a family that is best able to meet the child’s individual needs and personality.
