More Kandiyohi County kids placed out-of-home in 2010


WILLMAR -- Kandiyohi County spent $1.6 million last year to put children in a variety of out-of-home placement settings, like foster care and group homes, when they could no longer live with their parents.

The expense was a significant portion of the approximately $2 million budget for protecting children and it was done without a lot of help from the state.
