Thank you for exploring how to become a foster parent with us. The need for foster parents in Eau Claire County, Wisconsin is great. Especially homes with flexible schedules wanting to care for kids over age 8. Your family will receive weekly in-home support visits and access to 24/7 support!
New foster parent training prepares families to care for children with heightened emotions and behaviors due to prolonged neglect and abuse. Each child will have an individual treatment plan to address trauma and allow for healing. Foster parents are an important part of a professional team.
The biggest difference is in the amount of support and personal attention you will receive.
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.
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.
Longtime CCR foster parent Margaret is shown here 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, including weekly in-home visits, 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.
CCR has many foster families in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. We would love to speak with you about joining our team!
