Motivated applicants can be licensed quickly. Although there are many steps to becoming a foster parent with CCR, we walk you through the process at a comfortable pace. The licensing process begins with an application and favorable background checks. In addition, 36 hours of training are required to prepare new foster parents and gain the confidence needed to foster.
The biggest difference is the amount of support and personal attention you will receive.
Many CCR families in the Eau Claire area are caring for sibling groups. The need is great, and we encourage you to consider helping siblings. Many groups come from farther north and have suffered neglect due to parental drug use. CCR places siblings together in one home and provides all necessary support services to kids and foster parents. We continually witness tremendous growth and healing with young sibling groups.
Longtime CCR foster parent Margaret is shown with Brian, our placement coordinator. Brian has been dedicated to CCR for 21 years and knows Rebecca and her family well. He has worked with Rebecca closely, placing over 30 children in her home. In addition, Margaret's case manager Wanda has been providing family support services for 18 years! Yes, it's true. Wanda is the only case manager Margaret and her family have ever had. In fact, the relationships between foster parents and case managers are a huge part of our success in helping children heal from trauma.
