We have received so much!
We looked into several agencies before deciding on CCR. We chose them because of the promised support services and training. They have held true to their promise and then some. We have felt completely supported by our case manager and other staff members through every placement we have had. It’s been a great experience working with CCR. Some placements have been difficult for us, but we hung in there with CCR support and feel we served the kids well. All in all, it’s been incredibly rewarding and we have received so much more than we feel we have given.

It takes Heart, Commitment and Understanding
After raising our own children we decided to foster. We were living outside of Wisconsin at that time and took in 3 little brothers. We raised those boys with much love and patience, and they continue to be a part of our lives now that they are older and out on their own. Upon moving to Wisconsin, we had the itch to explore agencies again. We chose Community Care Resources and could not be happier with the support and services we get. We adopted a little girl that was placed with us and she is now part of our forever family. There are kids just waiting for a safe place to be with people who care. It takes a lot of heart, commitment and understanding. CCR will be there to teach and support you 24/7. These are great people and we thank them and recommend them to anyone interested in fostering.

An Empty Nest and a Desire to Help Kids
While our biological children were still at home, we both worked as county foster parents. Time passed, our children grew up, went off to college and got married, leaving us an empty nest and a continued desire to help kids. We discovered CCR and committed to the agency because of a warm, supportive staff. With a mix of unconditional support, trauma-informed training and some trial-and-error, we helped our first foster child overcome mental challenges associated with significant abuse and neglect. We were able to help 45 kids heal and grow into successful, happy adults, an experience that changed both of us as much, if not more than the foster children themselves.

We feel welcomed at CCR
We have had great experiences with CCR. We chose the agency because they made us feel very welcome. The parents are a diverse group and we appreciate that. We have had 12 kiddos to date and have enjoyed every minute of parenting each of them.

It was truly our blessing
Over the course of 12 years, we were blessed to have touched the lives of 27 different children and the greater miracle is that five of them are now adopted as our own. Our time as foster parents was filled with all the emotion one could ever experience and we attribute our success in part to a wonderful agency. CCR’s vision of what treatment foster care should be was amazing.

My entire family has grown from this amazing experience!
The staff at CCR is on top of their game that is for sure! They have always been honest and up-front with any questions I may have asked. I enjoy going to trainings that they provide. I can be sure I will leave learning something new! We have shared our home with many teenage girls and I can say that I have never had any regrets. Many are grown now and they often call to say they miss me or to tell me about their new job or ask if I can babysit their children. My life has changed in many, many ways! Every one of my kids has made me who I am today and for that I thank them! My entire family has grown and learned from this amazing experience! I have a huge support system which I know helps. This support system is not just made up of my wonderful family and friends, but my Clinical Case Manager and the rest of CCR’s staff! Just like a team sport’I can’t take credit for any of my children alone. I am just a member of the TEAM!

A strong support system is imperative
My husband and I have been foster parents for several years and have had the opportunity to work with youth, which is something we have always enjoyed doing. However, it can be an extremely challenging job and a strong support system is imperative if you are to succeed. Over the years, we have had the opportunity to engage with several different agencies to accomplish our job. After my husband and I decided to take about a 5-year break, we decided to foster again. We heard that at Community Care Resources no one is known by a number, 24 hour support really does happen, one on one training if needed and many other training opportunities are there for you. We are kept up to date on all new policies and procedures but most of all people are helping people work towards one goal. We receive weekly face-to-face contact with our support system and more if we need it. The list goes on and on. The people of Community Care Resources are like the mother who does not eat because she wants to make sure her child gets enough first. Well, in this case our needs and the needs of our foster children are met first. I believe you would be hard pressed to find another place like Community Care Resources and the people who keep it moving.
