A foster parent is someone who is willing to provide a home for a child who is in temporary need of a family. It could be for a weekend, several months, or until the child turns 18. We can work with potential foster parents who have a preference, but most of our children don’t know how long they’ll need a place to stay.

We are in the greatest need of parents willing to help any child who finds himself or herself without a family, and our foster parents often find this is the most rewarding way to enter the program.

NFI North provides programs, consultation, and support services in a variety of settings across the states of Maine and New Hampshire. We work with adults, children and families to empower and inspire them to reach their full potential and to live in their own homes and community. We provide therapeutic services based on best-practice research. We believe that people can change, and we work to empower each individual in their own care.

Requirements to become a foster parent

New Hampshire foster parents are entitled to support payments. These help cover the costs of caring for a foster child. Let's take a look at some of the available benefits:

Support Payments

In New Hampshire, foster parents receive reimbursement for daily costs. This includes board, meals, clothing, and other everyday expenses. The pay rate varies depending on the foster child's age and needs, but base payments begin at $24.48/day, up to $29.49/day.

Children with special needs are also entitled to additional specialized funds, up to $36.86/day. You can learn more about expense payments for New Hampshire foster parents by clicking here.

Medical and Dental Coverage

Children in the New Hamshire foster system are covered for dental and medical care under the Medicare system.

However, it's up to the foster parents to book all necessary medical appointments and make sure the foster child attends them.

Training and Support Groups

Alongside mandatory foster parent training, there are additional courses available. This extra training helps foster parents excel and provide the best possible environment for the children in their care.

Foster parents are also invited to attend local support groups, where they can meet their peers and talk about all aspects of being a New Hampshire foster parent.
