We are so happy you are exploring how to become a foster parent with us. There is a great need for more foster parents in Columbia County and the surrounding area. We currently have foster families in towns such as Columbus, Poynette, Wisconsin Dells, and Portage and we are always in need of more loving foster homes with flexible schedules.
John and Brittany live in Columbia county and were licensed in the summer of 2019. Within two weeks of getting their license, they accepted the placement of a young sibling pair. Their 4-year-old son was top of mind when they accepted their first placement. Rest assured, CCR staff goes to great lengths to make sure that younger children already in the family will be safe from any past trauma behaviors coming into the home. John and Brittany feel that the sibling pair and their son have done extremely well together.
CCR foster families accept a variety of children based on their license level and the level of care of a child. CCR requires foster parents to have very flexible day-to-day schedules to meet the heightened needs of foster children.
If you are interested in younger children, we request that you are open to helping children up to age 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.
Both Brittany and John work full-time 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.
