Watch this inspiring video with sound on so you can hear this foster mom's passion!

Shortly after getting her foster care license, this retired veteran welcomed an 8-year-old boy into her home who had experienced significant tragedy in his young life. They had a powerful exchange that may very well move your heart to consider fostering.

CCR needs foster parents in every county across Wisconsin. No matter where you live, what you do, who you are with, how much you make, or why your heart keeps telling you to explore... We would love to speak with you.

If you have some flexibility in your day to day schedule to be there for kids, attend appointments, work around school schedules, and provide consistent stability, please contact us.

* The two have been together for over a year. Healing is happening, love has grown, and there is so much hope for a little guy who went through so much at such an early age.

Thank you not only to this amazing foster mom, but all of our CCR foster parents who selflessly give to kids every single day.
