Foster Care Questions & Answers


Foster Care Wisconsin

Become a foster parent with us!

Welcome to Community Care Resources, a statewide Wisconsin foster care agency with foster homes in over 30 Wisconsin counties. For over 31 years our staff has supported hundreds of foster parents and thousands of foster children and families. Our goal is to provide children with a stable, loving home while helping them heal from trauma due to neglect and/or abuse. We offer both basic and treatment level foster care and we rely on foster parents with flexibility in their day to day schedules to meet the many needs of foster children. We are a family of dedicated employees and foster parents and we love the work we do. 
Children are referred to us from counties across Wisconsin when a county does not have an available foster home to meet a child or sibling group's needs. Many children are in need of treatment services to address a variety of traumas, while others are part of a sibling group in hopes of being placed together. Each month approximately 40 children are referred to us from counties across Wisconsin. No matter what county you reside in, no matter if you are single, married, LGBT, retired, or working with a flexible schedule, we welcome you to explore how to become a foster parent with us. Our greatest need is to license new homes wishing to care for children over age 6.
We will guide you through the licensing process and support you throughout your fostering journey. We are best known for outstanding support services, including weekly in-home visits. We are on the cutting edge of new and innovative approaches to meet the ever-changing needs of kids with trauma and we are one of the largest private agencies in the state of Wisconsin. If you are interested in speaking with us, we love to talk about foster care! If you are a current foster parent wanting to transfer your license from a county or other private agency, we would love to tell you how we are different from other agencies. 
We know you have questions and we have Wisconsin foster care answers.

Our Clinical Case Managers provide WEEKLY HOME VISITS to support both parents and kids. Scheduled weekly visits offer generous time to discuss successes and challenges at home and in school. Open communication about medical updates, biological family relations, and emotional wellness is crucial to the success of all parents and children. Whether celebrating milestones, creating discipline strategies, or preparing to reunite children with their biological parents, our support team is by your side. Our foster parents value and appreciate the plethora of foster parent support services they receive. In fact, it’s the #1 reason parents choose to license with us and it is what sets us apart from county foster care agencies and other private agencies in Wisconsin. 

Most children are temporarily placed in foster care due to severe neglect, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and/or significant loss. Some have been abandoned, others have a parent struggling with drug addiction. The Wisconsin foster care system is in crisis, and CCR needs families to care for children ages 5-18 and sibling groups. 

Being a foster parent in Wisconsin comes with beautiful rewards and joy that can last a lifetime. As a CCR foster parent, you will provide a safe and stable home for children who have entered the foster care system by no choice of their own. You may have a dozen reasons to say no, or not yet, but exploring this website is a great first step to understanding how it all works and our website has been designed to help you explore and get the answers you need.  

We are always in need of more foster parents and you can live in ANY county and license with us. Just like your county foster agency, you will be licensed as a "basic, level 2" foster home (unless you meet the requirements for higher-level care or have prior fostering experience). If in the future you wish to care for children with higher levels of trauma, that choice is yours. Singles, married couples, and LGBT foster parents, and families with flexible schedules are all encouraged to explore fostering with us.

Foster care training classes are offered throughout the year and there are many steps to becoming a foster parent. If you meet the requirements and can provide a flexible, loving, stable home for children in need, we would love to work with you.
