THE NEED FOR MORE FOSTER HOMES IS GREATER THAN EVER. OUR OFFICE IS OPEN.
For over 30 years, Community Care Resources has been serving foster parents and children across Wisconsin with one goal in mind: Help children heal from trauma.
County foster agencies from all corners of Wisconsin have been referring foster children to CCR since 1989. We are proud to be a foster agency where hope and healing begin for children with trauma and for sibling groups. The children we place have suffered abuse and/or neglect and make up nearly 20% of the Wisconsin foster care system. Trauma-Informed Care and exceptional foster care support services are what set us apart from other private foster care agencies.
Community Care Resources is one of the largest private foster agencies in Wisconsin, our foster parents reside in 35 counties and care for nearly 110 children. All of our foster parents participate in the children's individualized treatment plan and receive weekly in-home support to assist them in caring for children placed in their home. We provide training, licensing, continued education, and support services to each of our foster families. Support is why so many foster parents choose us and why seasoned foster parents transfer to us.
You will not find a revolving door of employees at CCR. Each member of our management team has been dedicated to CCR for the majority of his or her career, most for over 20 years. Our Clinical Case Managers are dedicated to their foster parents, in the field, averaging 15 years of employment with us. In addition, we have many foster families that have been part of our family for over 16 years and on average our foster parents welcome kids into their homes for 6.7 years before retiring. The staff at Community Care Resources is humbled and grateful to have amazing foster parents from around the state of Wisconsin on this journey with us to serve children with significant trauma.
Foster Parent Training Requirements exceed state standards
Our Foster Parent Training team is dedicated to ensuring each foster parent receives the required and specialized training they need and much more. With a focus on Trauma-Informed Care, our foster families are prepared with the tools and knowledge they need to successfully care for children.
Quarterly continuing education classes are held in 6 counties throughout the state. Foster parents attend to learn from each other, share with one another, and feel appreciated as a part of a dedicated team of professionals.
