Become a foster parent in Marathon County, Wisconsin

We are so happy you are exploring how to become a foster parent in Marathon County. There are many children in Wausau and surrounding areas in need of a stable home. We always have a need for more foster parents in Marathon county that can offer flexible schedules. We currently have a desperate need for new families to care for kids over the age of 8. CCR staff offers the 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. All CCR foster parents are an important part of a professional team.

Foster parents are needed for ages 8-18 and sibling groups.

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 Wausau for 7 years. She is shown here with her adopted daughter Cheyenne. Margaret fostered Cheyenne for 27 months prior to adoption.  Her 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.

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.
