Community Care Resources is a private, treatment foster care agency committed to responding to the effects of childhood trauma. Our staff works with children and foster families to promote healing. Using trauma-informed care techniques and principles, our foster parents help kids heal and grow in remarkable ways.
CCR is one of the largest, private foster care agencies in Wisconsin. We have foster parents in 35 county locations and over 110 children in care. All families are receiving 24/7 support.
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 key components in helping kids heal from trauma.
Each member of our management team has been dedicated to CCR for most of his or her career. All have Master's degrees in social work and 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. 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.
Foster parent training exceeds state standards.
Foster parents receive in-depth trauma-informed care training, and continued education. Using trauma-informed parenting tools and skills helps our kids heal. Our team ensures each foster family receives the required training necessary to care for children with heightened behaviors. In fact, upon licensure, 100% of our new foster parents tell us they feel prepared to care for kids with trauma.
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.
