Don't worry, we will not place a child in your home that you are not prepared or trained to care for. It takes time to learn and grow as a foster parent and that can only come from experience and training. Our hope is that our foster parents might consider moving to a level 3 after getting a few years of experience with us, however, it is not required.
The more trauma a child has, their path to healing and growing can be more challenging thus may put them at a higher level of care. We have a variety of foster families across the state of Wisconsin. Many foster parents are level 2, others are level 3 and only a few are licensed at level 4. There is no pressure to move levels!
Since 2010, CCR has utilized a trauma-informed approach. All foster parents regardless of level are trained in Trauma-Informed Care. Initial and continuous training is well planned, informative, interesting, interactive, and prepares foster parents to care for kids with trauma. Quarterly trainings are held in multiple towns across the state. Foster parents enjoy meeting, sharing, and learning together.
