Founded and administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota, Caring for Children is a health, dental and mental health benefit program for eligible North Dakota children. These children are from working families who do not qualify for government-funded medical assistance programs and whose parents cannot afford private health insurance. Last year, 1,089 children received health, dental and mental health care through the Caring for Children program.

The North Dakota Caring Foundation operates as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is privately funded by foundations, churches, individuals, businesses and civic organizations.
