We are so happy you are exploring becoming a foster parent with us in Door County. 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 level services. CCR always needs additional loving families to care for kids with trauma histories. At this time, we only service the southern part of Door county near Sturgeon Bay.
Mark and Cindy live in Door County and were issued their foster care license in the summer of 2017. Within three 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 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 Mark 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!
The differences are mainly found in the amount of support CCR foster parents receive. In addition, the unmatched experience and education of our staff are critical in helping kids heal from trauma. CCR kids have a variety of trauma histories and require foster families to have a flexible schedule. In turn, CCR provides the following support to ALL foster parents.
We place kids of all ages in Door County, generally between ages 5-18, and many are sibling pairs and groups. Our greatest need is homes for children over age 10.
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.
