Thank you for exploring how to become a foster parent in Buffalo County. We are always in need of loving homes with flexible schedules in Buffalo County and would love to speak with you about your interests.
CCR foster families accept a variety of children based on their interests and license level. The majority of kids have trauma histories from prolonged neglect and/or abuse and require foster parents to have a flexible day-to-day schedule to meet their needs.
Jim and Marsha live in Wisconsin and were licensed in the fall of 2017. Within two weeks of getting their license, they accepted the placement of a 12-year-old boy and his 7-year-old sister. The children were in a county foster home prior to being welcomed by Jim and Marsha. CCR immediately helped the couple put services in place for both children to receive necessary therapy to address their trauma histories. The sibling pair stayed with John and Cindy for 27 months as foster children and were adopted by the couple in 2020. The kids have come a long way and the growth and healing have been remarkable!
If you are interested in younger children, we request that you are open to helping children between ages 5-12. Of course, our greatest need is homes for 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 and stability to children, we would love to speak with you.
