We are very happy you are exploring how to become a foster parent with us in Adams County, Wisconsin. We always have a need for more loving foster parents with flexible schedules to care for kids of all ages and sibling groups. We need loving homes with flexible schedules to welcome toddlers, elementary ages, teens, and siblings. Our staff is local and will visit with you in your Adams County home each week while children are in your care.
As a new CCR foster parent, you will be licensed as a level 2 (basic) foster home, just like you would with a county foster agency. Foster kids at level 2 have experienced neglect and/or abuse and will have trauma and behaviors because of it. With experience, you may choose to provide treatment foster care for kids with heightened trauma histories. Moving up to level 3 or level 4 foster care requires experience and additional qualifications.
So, what is the difference between CCR and county foster care agencies? The differences are mainly found in the amount of support and attention you will receive as well as the unmatched experience and education of our staff.
We place kids of all ages and many are sibling pairs and groups. A typical placement will last 12-24 months. The majority of our children are over age five.
Susan and her husband live in Adams County and have been licensed foster parents with CCR for 6 years. She is shown here with Brian our placement coordinator. Susan's case manager Jamie visits the home weekly and spends approximately 45 minutes, per child, discussing the week's happenings and reviewing each child's plan. The goal of the visit is to provide Susan and her family with the best support possible. The relationships between foster parents and case managers are a huge part of our success in helping children heal from trauma.
