Foster Care

The Foster Care Licensing program increases the availability of relative placement resources and family supports. There is a need for emergency, short and long-term foster care placements. There are not enough culturally appropriate homes for our children, resulting in the plaement of Alaska Native children in homes that do not share their cultural heritage or traditions.

The Foster Care Licensing program recruits Alaska Natives and American Indians to become foster parents. Families can choose to be licensed through the State of Alaska Office of Children Services (OCS), Tlingit & Haida, or both.

All children deserve a safe and stable home. if you are interested in making a difference in a child's life and would like to ensure our tribal children are engaged and connected with their culture and traditional values, please consider becoming a foster parent.

Please review the Foster Care Licensing section under Family Services in Tlingit & Haida's Program Profiles booklet for the application process and eligibility requirements. The booklet may be accessed by clicking here.
