The most significant difference between agencies is the amount of support and personal attention you will receive.
Many CCR families in the Eau Claire area are caring for sibling groups but our need is great. Unfortunately, many siblings have suffered prolonged neglect due to parental drug use and are in need of homes. CCR places siblings together in one home and provides all necessary support services to kids and foster parents. As a result, 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 24 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 has provided the family support services for 18 years! The relationship between foster parents and case managers is a huge part of our success in helping children heal from trauma.
