CCR specializes in Treatment Foster Care, providing the mental health services and additional support needed to care for youth with higher need levels.

Image of KidsAll children placed in care in the state of Wisconsin are assessed using the Child and Adolescent Needs & Strengths (CANS) tool. The tool is used to measure the well-being, level of functioning, status on permanence and quality of life. This tool informs our case managers and licensing coordinators on the needs and strengths of the child being placed in a foster home. Every child is given a Level of Need based on their CANS score. Our 20+ year, veteran staff member, Brian, is responsible for reviewing the CANS and using the score to place a child in the appropriate licensed foster home. The child’s level of need is used in conjunction with the foster parent’s level of care certification to provide stability in placement and promote positive outcomes. Basically, a higher level of care certification means you are able to care for youth with higher need levels.

Community Care Resources has very few foster homes certified below levels 3 and 4 Treatment Foster Care. Although parents may start their fostering journey at a level 2, the goal should be to continue training to obtain the knowledge and licensure for levels 3 then 4. Our 30 years of experience in higher level foster care sets apart from other Wisconsin agencies.

Level 2 Referred to as basic foster care requiring foster parents to provide mild to moderate care depending on child specific needs. Providing this level of care requires less training than higher levels of care. Most CCR foster parents begin at this level with goals of moving to higher needs children.
Level 3 Considered moderate treatment foster care, which requires constant supervision and care to children with higher needs. (Additional requirements must be met to care for children with higher needs.)
Level 4 Considered specialized treatment foster care, structured to meet the higher needs of children such as teen parents, those on the autism spectrum or youth with sexually aggressive behaviors. (Additional requirements above level 3 must be met to care for children with higher needs.)
