WE DESPERATELY NEED FOSTER HOMES WITH FLEXIBLE SCHEDULES FOR KIDS AGES 10-18.
Doug, Dane County
Fostering has been fulfilling, especially when the kids contact us after leaving foster care.
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 Wisconsin families are needed for children of all ages and sibling groups.
Being a foster parent in Wisconsin comes with beautiful rewards and joy that can last a lifetime. As a foster parent, you will provide a safe and nurturing 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.
We are always in need of more foster parents. 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. 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 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 loving, safe home for children in need, we would love to work with you.
