Since 1998, North Homes has successfully provided adoption services for children from birth to age 17, under State or Tribal guardianship.

As a Public Private Adoption Initiative (PPAI) agency, North Homes focuses on the placement of children 12 and older. Grant funding from the Minnesota Department of Human Services allows North Homes to offer, at virtually no cost, adoptive placement and child specific services to Minnesota children and families through the Minnesota Waiting Program.  Our licensors and case managers work with families throughout Minnesota - from northern Minnesota to the north Metro area!
