What is the difference between CCR and county agencies like Eau Claire County?

The biggest difference is in the amount of support and personal attention you will receive.

  • Weekly in-home support visits and school visits with a focus on helping kids heal.
  • 24/7 helpline so you can speak with a CCR case manager after hours at any time of day.
  • All CCR case managers have a master's degree in social work allowing for a clinical approach.
  • A 16-year average length of employment among CCR case managers, means they love working here.
  • Trauma-informed care training before and during your foster care journey to help you help the kids.
  • Maximum of 15 kids allowed on each case manager's caseload, to prevent burnout and frustration.

If you are interested in younger children, we request that you are open to helping children up to age 10. Most CCR kids are of school age. It is not often that we place infants, babies, or toddlers. 

The greatest need is homes for teens.

If you qualify to be a foster parent and can provide love, patience, and acceptance to children with trauma, we would love to speak with you. We encourage you to explore our website and find many answers to the important foster care questions you have.
