WE DESPERATELY NEED FOSTER HOMES WITH FLEXIBLE SCHEDULES FOR KIDS AGES 10-18.
We are so happy you are exploring how to become a foster parent with us. There are many foster children in Columbia County and the surrounding area in need of a loving home. We have foster families in towns such as Columbus, Poynette, Wisconsin Dells, and Portage and we are always in need of more homes.
John and Brittany live in Columbia county and were licensed in the summer of 2019. Within two weeks of getting their license, they accepted a placement of a young sibling pair.
CCR foster families accept a variety of children based on their license level and the level of care of a child. All new CCR foster parents begin their journey as a level 2 (basic) foster home, just like you would with Columbia County. The children placed in level 2 homes have experienced neglect and/or abuse and will have trauma because of it. With time and experience, foster parents may choose to move to level 3 or 4, treatment foster care, to care for children with heightened behaviors and emotions due to significant trauma.
So, what is the difference between CCR and county agencies like Columbia?
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 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.
Both Brittany and John work fulltime but have enough flexibility in their weekly schedules to meet the needs of the kids and attend all necessary appointments. We are grateful they chose CCR and are so happy that their first placement has worked out so well for everyone.
If you qualify to be a foster parent and can provide love and stability to children, we would love to speak with you. We encourage you to explore our website and find many answers to the important questions about Wisconsin foster care you may have.
