Foster Care in North Dakota

Licensed foster care homes are needed in North Dakota.

Foster care is a service that provides care for children who cannot live with their own families for a temporary period of time. The goal of foster care is to create permanency for a child and whenever possible, to reunite a child with their family.

Children may need a foster home because they have been abused, neglected or abandoned. They may have serious mental, physical or emotional problems resulting in the need for treatment or therapeutic services. Foster parents work as a team member with a public agency (human service zone - formerly known as county social services), Division of Juvenile Services, or Tribal Social Services) to provide the support a child needs to thrive physically, emotionally, and socially.

If a child cannot go home and be reunified with his/her parents, foster families provide care and stability as the team plans to best meet the child's needs through a placement with an identified relative, a formal guardianship or even adoption. Foster families also help prepare older adolescents for living independently.
