Collaborative Post-Adoption Services Contract Awarded – MN ASAP
In 1999 the Minnesota Department of Human Services contracted with MN ADOPT to establish a new state program focused on providing Minnesota post-adoption supportive services. This program, whose full title was Minnesota Adoption Support and Preservation, became commonly referred to in the adoption community as MN ASAP.
Through MN ASAP, MN ADOPT collaborated closely with the North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC) to offer Minnesota Adoption Support and Preservation resources, referrals, training, and support groups to adoptive families in Minnesota. While the MN ASAP contract ended in 2009, both MN ADOPT and NACAC would go on to separately provide complementary post adoption services to the Minnesota adoption community.
