A license is required to operate a family foster home for children. An application and a home study are required. All adults living in the home must successfully complete a fingerprint-based criminal background check.

Contact the ND Recruitment & Retention Specialist at 1-833-FST-HOME to learn more or request an application.  You may also visit with a foster care supervisor from a local Human Service Zone about the area need and licensing process.
