North Homes is able to provide child specific recruitment (CSR) services to find a permanency option for a specific youth in foster care. Child specific recruitment services are free and may be used once a county or Tribal social service agency has exhausted routine activity efforts to place a youth. Through this process, our recruiter actively works with the youth’s treatment team and involves the youth when developmentally appropriate. Child specific recruitment services are available for a youth under State or Tribal guardianship, ages 6 to 18, and sibling groups being placed together where the oldest youth is age 6 or older. These services may be extended to youth, ages 18 to 21, provided that PPAI recruitment services began prior to the youth’s 18th birthday, and the youth remained in foster care.
