Become a foster parent in Chippewa County

We are so happy you are exploring how to become a foster parent with us. We are always in need of additional foster parents in Chippewa County. We have loving families in Chippewa Falls, Cadott, Bloomer, and other surrounding towns. The foster kids placed in these homes are a variety of ages with different levels of needs.

As a new CCR foster parent, you will begin your journey as a level 2 (basic) foster home, just like you would with Chippewa County foster care. Level 2 kids come with a variety of needs and trauma. With experience, foster parents may choose to provide treatment foster care, levels 3 and 4, to care for children with heightened behaviors and emotions due to significant trauma. Remaining at level 2 is okay too.

Foster parents succeed with local support services.

Lynn and Scott received their foster care license in 2019. Caring for children ages 12 and under has been a wonderful experience for them. To date, they have welcomed a sibling set of 2 and a single child to their home. Case Worker visits are extremely helpful and happen every week in their Chippewa County home. Stephanie is the Clinical Case Manager in Chippewa and has been assigned to support a variety of CCR foster homes over her 9 years with the agency.

So, what is the difference between CCR and county agencies like Chippewa? The differences are mainly found in the amount of support and attention you will receive and the unmatched experience and education of our staff.

  • Weekly in-home support and school visits with a focus on helping kids heal.
  • 24/7 helpline allows all foster parents to speak with a CCR case manager within minutes any time of day.
  • All CCR case managers have a master's degree in Social Work allowing for a clinical approach.
  • A 15-year average length of employment among our case managers, means they love working at CCR.
  • Trauma-informed care training before and during your foster care journey to help you care for the kids.
  • A maximum of 15 kids is allowed on each case manager's caseload ensuring quality, individual attention for you and the kids.

We place kids of all ages and many are sibling pairs and groups. Of course, our greatest need, like all over the nation, is homes for kids over the age of 8. A typical placement will last 12-24 months.

If you qualify to be a foster parent and can provide a flexible schedule, love, and stability to children in need of a loving home, we would love to speak with you. We also encourage you to explore our website and find many additional answers to the important foster care questions you have.
