Become a foster parent in Jefferson County

Thank you for exploring how to become a foster parent with us. There is always a need for additional foster homes in Jefferson County. We currently have loving families in towns like Watertown, Jefferson, and Fort Atkinson but the need is great so we are happy you are considering foster care.

Foster parents help kids heal.

John and Lynn live in Jefferson county and were licensed in the summer of 2015. Within four weeks of getting their license, they accepted the placement of a 13-year-old boy and his 11-year-old sister. The children were in a county foster home prior to being welcomed by John and Lynn. CCR immediately helped the couple put services in place for both children to receive necessary therapy to address their trauma histories from years of neglect. The sibling pair stayed with John and Lynn for 27 months as foster children and were adopted by the couple. The kids have come a long way and the growth and healing have been remarkable!

The difference between a private foster agency and a county agency.

So, what is the difference between CCR and county agencies like Jefferson? The differences are mainly found in the amount of support and attention you will receive and the unmatched experience of our staff.

  • Weekly in-home support and school visits with a focus on helping kids heal.
  • 24/7 helpline allows all foster parents to speak with a CCR case manager within minutes at any time of day.
  • All CCR case managers have a master's degree in Social Work allowing for a clinical approach.
  • A 15-year average length of employment among our case managers, means they love working at CCR.
  • Trauma-informed care training before and during your foster care journey to help you care for the kids.
  • A maximum of 15 kids is allowed on each case manager's caseload ensuring quality, individual attention for you and the kids.

We place kids of all ages in Jefferson county and many are sibling pairs and groups. A typical placement will last 12-24 months.

If you qualify to be a foster parent and can provide a flexible schedule, love, and stability to children in need of a loving home, we would love to speak with you. We also encourage you to explore our website and find many additional answers to the important foster care questions you have.
