Relative Search & Engagement Referral Form - Page 1 of 3 (Basic & Contact Information)

Please Note: If you are intending to submit a referral for Kin Link, please contact Renee Banas 612-384-4289.

Kin Link Kinship Search is different than Relative Search & Engagement services. If you are sure you need to submit a Relative Search & Engagement referral, please review information below:

Our PPAI Contract with DHS requires every youth referred for Relative Search & Engagement:

  • Be under guardianship of the Commissioner or Tribal Guardianship and
  • Be 6 years of age or older or part of sibling group where at least one sibling is 6 years of age or older.
Please submit the referral after there has been a Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) and when you have time to fill out both pages of the referral form, especially page 2: Relative & Kin Contacts and Support.
  • Page 1 of this referral is for entering youth demographics, basic referral information, and worker's contact information.
  • Page 2 of this referral is for providing parents names and dates of birth and any available information you have regarding other relative or kin. We are unable to begin relative/kin search and engagement services without the required fields on page 2 being completed.
  • Page 3 of this referral is for you to review all previously entered information, revise as needed, and submit the referral.

Thank you in advance for all the information you're providing. This will greatly assist us in our relative search & engagement efforts for the youth!
