In addition, 36 hours of training are required to prepare new foster parents and gain the confidence needed to foster. 

What is the difference between CCR and county foster agencies?

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

  • Weekly in-home support visits and school visits focused on helping kids heal.
  • 24/7 helpline so you can speak with a CCR case manager after hours at any time.
  • 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 are dedicated.
  • 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.

The greatest need is for foster parents for young sibling groups and kids over age 10.

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.

If you qualify as a foster parent and can provide love, patience, and stability 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.
