Community Care Resources is a statewide treatment foster care agency committed to responding to the effects of childhood trauma. Treatment foster care is designed to provide healing in a loving, structured home environment for kids with heightened emotions and behaviors due to trauma histories.
CCR is one of the largest private foster care agencies in Wisconsin. We currently have foster parents in 35 county locations and over 120 children in care. Our foster parents use trauma-informed care techniques and principles to care for children ages 3-18 and sibling groups. All families are receiving 24/7 support and weekly in-home visits.
After three decades of caring for severely neglected and abused children, there is one thing we know for sure – the key to helping a child recover and heal from trauma is a loving, stable family environment with foster care support services in place. Children with trauma histories often require more than good parenting skills. Treatment and mental health services have proven to be critical components in helping kids heal.
Each member of our management team has been dedicated to CCR for most of their career. All have Master's degrees in social work, and all five have been employed with us for over 21 years. In addition, our Clinical Case Managers average an astounding 16 years of employment with CCR. Not only do our staff members stay for years, but our foster parents also follow suit. The first family to be licensed in 1989 still fosters teen girls with us! We are humbled and grateful to work with amazing foster parents from around the state of Wisconsin.
Foster parents receive in-depth trauma-informed care training and continued education. Our team ensures each foster family gets the training necessary to care for children with heightened behaviors. In fact, upon licensure, 100% of our new foster parents tell us they feel prepared and confident to accept a child or sibling group to their home. In addition, continuing education classes and foster parent support groups are held via Zoom and in-person throughout the state. Foster parents learn from each other, share, and feel appreciated as a part of a dedicated team of professionals.
