Thank you for exploring how to become a foster parent with us. We are always in need of loving homes with flexible schedules in Dodge County, Wisconsin and would love to speak with you about your interests.
Community Care Resources is a statewide foster agency committed to understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of childhood trauma. Our staff works with children and foster families to promote healing with a variety of treatment services. 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.
John and Cindy live in Dodge county and were licensed in the summer of 2017. Within two weeks of getting their license, they accepted the placement of a 12-year-old boy and his 9-year-old sister. The children were in a county foster home prior to being welcomed by John and Cindy. CCR immediately helped the couple put services in place for both children to receive necessary therapy to address their trauma histories from years of neglect. The sibling pair stayed with John and Cindy for 27 months and were adopted from foster care by the couple in 2020. The kids have come a long way and the growth and healing have been remarkable!
We place children of all ages, generally between ages 5-18 and sibling groups. 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.
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.
