We are so happy you are exploring how to become a foster parent in Kenosha County. There are many children in Kenosha and the surrounding area in need of a loving foster home. We always have a need for more foster parents in the southeast part of Wisconsin that can offer flexible schedules. We currently have a desperate need for new families with flexible schedules to care for kids over the age of 10. The CCR offers a promise to be available to you and exceed your expectations with communication and support services.
A foster care license can be issued in as little as 4 months. 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.
Most CCR kids are of school age. It is not often that we place infants, babies, or toddlers. If this is your desire you may wish to contact your county foster agency. A typical CCR placement will last 12-24 months.
Margaret has been a foster parent in Kenosha for 4 years. She is shown here with her adopted daughter Cheyenne. Margaret fostered Cheyenne for 27 months prior to adoption. Dominic and Carol currently have two children in their care, a 7-year old girl and her 10-year old brother. Their case manager Monica has been with CCR for 9 years and she herself was a foster child. The relationships between foster parents and case managers are a huge part of our success in helping children heal from trauma.
