American Indian Fostering

Children do best with foster families from their own culture. Nearly 5% of North Dakota's population is American Indian. American Indian foster families can offer the child a chance to remain a part of the community where they continue to learn about their cultural history. Tribal social services license foster homes within their tribal jurisdiction.

North Dakota county social services also have an ongoing need for American Indian foster homes.
