There is always a need for more homes to foster children from North Dakota. Foster families provide for the physical, emotional, and social needs of youth who are unable to live with their birth families. Some children in foster care need short term emergency shelter care, other children need care for longer periods of time or care for their special needs.
Foster parents can be:
Single or Married Owner or Renter Working Parents
At least 21 years of age
Comply with criminal history and child protection background check
Be financially stable
Demonstrate the competencies necessary to care for children with varying degrees of challenging needs -training available
Foster parents receive specialized training, financial compensation and 24 hour support. Children will have their own health insurance. Child care expenses are paid while foster parents are working. Adoptive parents receive specialized training and may be eligible for adoption assistance including health care coverage and monthly subsidy payment to aide in the ongoing care for the child(ren). Foster & adoptive parents truly make a difference in a child’s life by providing a loving and safe environment.
