WE DESPERATELY NEED FOSTER HOMES WITH FLEXIBLE SCHEDULES FOR KIDS AGES 10-18.
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 and would love to speak with you about your interests.
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. Level 2 kids come with a variety of needs and trauma and have experienced neglect and/or abuse. 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.
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 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 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.
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.
