Become a foster parent in Barron County

We are so happy you are exploring how to become a foster parent with us. We have many foster families in Barron county, Wisconsin and are always in need of additional foster homes to care for the dozens of kids that are referred to us each month. Children typically range in age from 5-18 and many are sibling pairs or groups.

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.Foster parent with boy

So, what is the difference between CCR and county agencies like Barron?

  • Weekly in-home support visits and school visits.
  • 24/7 Helpline so you can speak with a CCR case manager within minutes, after hours.
  • All CCR case managers have a master's degree in Social Work.
  • A 15-year average length of employment among CCR case managers.
  • Trauma-informed care training before and during your foster care journey.
  • Maximum of 15 kids allowed on each case worker's caseload.

If you are interested in younger children, we request that you are open to helping children up to age 10. Of course, our greatest need is flexible homes wishing to help teens but we place all ages and all sizes of sibling groups too. It is okay to have a preference for the age group you wish to help.

If you qualify to be a foster parent and can provide love, patience, and acceptance to children with trauma, we would love to speak with you. We encourage you to explore our website and find many answers to the important foster care questions you have.Barron County Foster Care
