Fostering has been fulfilling, especially when the kids contact us after leaving foster care.
CCR foster parents are licensed as treatment-level foster homes helping children and older youth heal from trauma histories. Our foster parent requirements are a bit more strict than county foster agencies. We require all families have a flexible schedule to meet the many needs of children with heightened behaviors and emotions. This allows for a structured, stable home environment where healing can happen.
CCR parents use learned trauma-informed care principles to help children ages 5-18. A typical placement may last 12-24 months. Many kids will reunify with family, while a small percentage (less than 17%) will be adopted by their foster parents. CCR has 10 qualifications that must be met and our 5 step process to become a foster parent makes for a streamlined licensing experience.Our therapeutic program provides additional support and therapy services to all children in care. Foster parents are part of a professional team, working side by side with Clinical Case Managers to meet each child's specific goals. Anyone from nearly any Wisconsin county is welcome to explore how to become a foster parent with us.

The Wisconsin foster care system continues to be in crisis, and CCR needs families to care for children ages 5-18 and sibling groups. More foster parents are needed to help the nearly 7,600 kids in Wisconsin foster care.
Clinical Case Managers provide weekly in-home visits to support both parents and kids. Open communication about medical updates, biological family relations, and emotional wellness is crucial to the success of all children. Whether celebrating milestones, creating discipline strategies, or preparing to reunite children with their biological parents, CCR staff members go above and beyond state standards to support foster parents and children.
CCR foster parents provide a safe and stable home for children who have entered the system by no choice of their own. There may be a dozen reasons to say no, or not yet, but exploring this website is a great first step to understanding how becoming a foster parent might be a great choice for you.
