PAGE 7_ THE PRESS APRIL 4, 2012 i i FOSTER Fisher has been a foster care licensor for eight years. Foster Care is a supportive service available to families experiencing problems and is considered after all other alternatives for a child's safety are explored. "'Foster parenting is rewarding but also difficult," said Fisher. Foster parents must be willing to work as a part of the Children and Family Team that includes a willingness to work with the child's par- ants. A federal (FBI) background check on all adults living in the prospec- tive tbster home also needs to be completed. Completion of PRIDE training mad Fire Safety must be completed prior to licensure. Foster parents are also required to complete 12 hours of training each and every year of licensure. Prospective foster parents must be at least 21 years of age. If married. have a stable marital relationship and married for at least one year and be financially stable whether married or single. Foster parents do receive a maintenance payment for the care of a CARE MEETING FROM PAGE 1 child and the amount depends on the child's age. As a licensed tbster home, foster parents have a choice in taking a child who needs place- ment at any time. "'Foster parents provide a nurturing and secure environment for a child until the child is able to return home." said Fisher. The length of a child's tbster care placement varies. Statistically, the average length of stay for children in care as of Sept. 30, 2011, was 13.2 months. According to the North Dakota Department of Human Services, Di- vision of Children and Family Services, there were 401 licensed family foster homes and 360 licensed therapeutic family foster homes in Sept. 2010. "Foster parents are just ordinary people who do extraordinary things by opening their hearts and homes to children in need?' added Fisher. If you are interested in looking into foster parenting or adoption and you cannot make this meeting, please call Rachel Fisher. LSW - Walsh Cotlnty Social Services 352-5130.

In the Northeast Grand Forks Region, eight law enforcement agencies participated in the second quarter of this program.
