North Homes Children and Family Services is licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services as a resource for foster care. Children and their families benefit from foster homes that are willing to be supportive, mentoring and caring. By providing children and adolescents in need with a nurturing family home, we are able to provide children the least restrictive, most appropriate setting to address their needs.

North Homes has approximately 150 licensed therapeutic foster homes throughout the state of Minnesota. Each licensed foster home is assigned a case manager who supports both the providers and the youth in care.
