WE DESPERATELY NEED FOSTER HOMES WITH FLEXIBLE SCHEDULES FOR KIDS AGES 10-18.
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 Kenosha that can offer flexible schedules and a willingness to help kids heal from their trauma. Our team will support you throughout your fostering journey and our promise is to be available to you and exceed your expectations with communication and support services.
As a new CCR foster parent, you will be licensed as a level 2 (basic) foster home, just like you would with Kenosha county. You may remain a level 2 foster home or down the road, with experience and additional qualifications, you may choose to provide treatment foster care (levels 3 & 4) for kids with heightened trauma histories. Staying at level 2 is okay with us too.
So, what is the difference between CCR and county agencies like Kenosha? The differences are mainly found in the amount of support and attention you will receive and the unmatched experience and education of our staff.
We place kids of all ages and many are sibling pairs and groups. A typical placement will last 12-24 months. It is not often that we place infants or babies, if this is your desire you may want to contact your county foster agency.
John and Amber have licensed with CCR for 4 years. They 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. She is shown here with Brian our placement coordinator. Brian has been placing foster children in CCR homes for 21 years. Rebecca's case manager Wanda (below) has been providing Rebecca and her foster children support services, including weekly in-home visits, for 18 years! Yes, it's true. Wanda is the only case manager Rebecca and her family has ever had. The relationships between foster parents and case managers are a huge part of our success helping children heal from trauma.
