We at Family Voices of MN are so grateful for each of you.
Your sturdy and generous spirits have been a bright spot to behold amongst the isolation and loss of 2020.

If you are a parent, stepparent or legal guardian for your child, but your child is not covered by a grant or waiver that allows you to be your child’s personal care attendant (PCA) there is a temporary change taking affect from 12/1/2020* to 2/7/2020 that will allow parents, stepparents and legal guardians to provide PCA services to their minor child and receive payment for care.

If you are interested in becoming a PCA for your child, contact your child’s PCA agency. To become a PCA worker for your child, you must follow the same enrollment process and requirements as other PCA workers.
