About CCR

Wisconsin foster care services since 1989

Support is Second to None

Foster Parent Support

Our goal is simple. Help foster children heal from trauma by supporting foster parents with an exceptional, professional team.

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 support services in place.

Children with trauma histories often require more than good parenting skills. Treatment and mental health services have proven to be key components in helping kids heal from trauma. We believe that support services set us apart from other Wisconsin foster agencies. Foster parents require 24/7 support, and the CCR staff does not disappoint. Weekly in-home visits with a Master's level Clinical Case Manager are a lifeline for CCR foster parents. In addition, personal and professional weekly support ensures successful outcomes. 

A team approach to foster care.

CCR is one of the largest private foster agencies in Wisconsin, with offices throughout the state. Approximately 45 children with heightened emotions and behaviors are referred to CCR each month. The kids have suffered prolonged neglect, sexual abuse, and/or physical abuse and require a team approach to healing.

Each member of our management team has been dedicated to CCR for most of his or her career. The majority, 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. In fact, the first family licensed in 1989 is still fostering teen girls with us! We are humbled and grateful to work with amazing foster parents from around the state of Wisconsin. We love the work we do, we appreciate our foster parents, and we pride ourselves on helping kids heal. 

Foster parent training exceeds state standards.

Support is Second to None

Foster Parent Support

Passionate, dedicated CCR foster parents care for children in over 35 Wisconsin counties while receiving local support services to promote a healing environment. Foster parents receive in-depth trauma-informed training, continued education, and 24/7 support services. Outstanding support services are why so many Wisconsin foster parents choose CCR and why seasoned foster parents stay for years.  Our team ensures each foster parent receives the required training necessary to care for children with heightened behaviors. Additionally, training sessions focus on Trauma-Informed Care, providing our foster families with the tools and knowledge needed to care for children successfully.

Quarterly continuing education classes are held in 6 counties throughout the state. Foster parents attend to learn from each other, share and feel appreciated as a part of a dedicated team of professionals.


Foster Children Receive Specialized Treatment Programs

Specialized Treatment Programs are available.

  • In 1993, CCR added an Outpatient Mental Health Certification. Our partner agency is Community Care Programs, a child and adolescent mental health clinic with locations across Wisconsin.
  • Our Specialized Group Care model was designed in 2001. The model combines the best of Treatment Foster Care and Treatment Group Care. CCR has many foster families caring for 3-4 older children at one time in a small, intimate group home model.
