When it comes to adult and child foster care programs in Otter Tail County, the need is there.

The county is home to nearly 100 licensed adult foster care facilities - 47 family foster care homes and 48 corporate foster care sites - according to Jody Dahlen, an adult foster care licensing social worker for the county.


"We're one of the bigger counties; we have a lot of adult foster homes," said Dahlen. "More than Becker and Clay counties."
