Thousands of Wisconsin children need temporary homes where they will be safe and feel loved. Most children are placed temporarily in foster care due to emotional and physical abuse, neglect 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 it’s being fueled by an increased number of drug-addicted parents using opioid painkillers, heroin and methamphetamine.

Wisconsin families are needed for children ages 0-21 but are desperately needed for school-aged children, older youth, and sibling groups. Many children involved in treatment foster care struggle with emotional and behavioral issues. With a team of support, these behaviors can be changed to become positive and healthy.

Every child placed in a Community Care Resources home receives a trauma-informed assessment within the first 30 days of their placement. This assessment helps determine the child’s level of care. Each level has training and qualifying requirements. Our licensing professionals are here to help you determine which level is the best fit for you and your household.

Being a foster parent in Wisconsin can be unpredictable, but it comes with huge 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 will be required to balance many roles and responsibilities, many of which will be demanding of your time and energy. Being a foster parent can be challenging and incredibly rewarding at the same time. Most parents find that the small successes and unexpected smiles help them get through the tough days of disruption and exhaustion. You may have a dozen reasons to say no, or not yet, but visiting our website is a great first step to exploring your options as a prospective foster parent.

We are always licensing new foster parents throughout Wisconsin. The areas of Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, Janesville, Juneau, Rock, Dane, Racine, Outagamie, and so many other Wisconsin counties are in desperate need of homes. Singles, married couples, LGBT individuals and families are all encouraged to explore foster parenting. The licensing process is intense and lengthy but necessary. Training classes, background checks, home studies, fingerprinting, interviews and a large quantity of paperwork are required steps to obtaining a foster care Wisconsin license. If you meet the requirements and can provide a loving, safe home for children in need, we would love to work with you.

Being part of a full support agency whose practices are genuine and whose policies fit your family’s needs is imperative to enjoying a positive fostering experience. CCR is dedicated to the children and families we serve. We take great pride in low employee turnover, master’s level case managers, dedicated office staff and owners that support all foster families and appreciate the sacrifices families make to care for youth in care.

Few things are more rewarding than giving of ones’ self to help others, especially when it comes to helping Wisconsin’s most vulnerable children.
