WE DESPERATELY NEED FOSTER HOMES WITH FLEXIBLE SCHEDULES FOR KIDS AGES 10-18.
Wisconsin foster care consists of different levels of care. Foster kids have a level and foster homes have a level. This information pertains to the level of licensing.
CCR foster parents are licensed at levels 2, 3, or 4. The higher the number the more experience and training a foster home must have and that correlates to the children we are able to place in a home.
Growing as a foster parent comes from experience and training. 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 remain licensed at level 2, others have moved to level 3 and only a few are licensed at level 4. The choice to move up a level is completely up to our foster parents!
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. Our foster parents both new and seasoned tell us they feel well prepared to care for foster children based on the training and preparation provided.
The information below is meant to give you an idea of the characteristics needed at the different levels of care certification. Read the details of the state of Wisconsin Level of Care Certification
