Why DO Foster Parents Choose CCR

Exploring and choosing the right foster agency can feel overwhelming. You may need some help finding out what questions to ask to evaluate an agency properly. Licensing, training, programming, staffing, and support services are essential to explore. Our experienced team can help you get the information needed to help with your decision. With honesty and transparency, you will get the answers to choose the best agency for your family.

Choose a private foster agency big enough to support yet small enough to care.

CCR is one of Wisconsin's most prominent private foster care agencies. We have licensed foster families in over 35 Wisconsin counties caring for children and youth ages 2-18. Our team has supported hundreds of foster families and thousands of kids with trauma histories since 1989.

For 34 years, our foster parents and highly experienced team have helped children and youth heal from past traumas. We do this by hiring and retaining the best possible staff and licensing families with flexible schedules and the ability to provide structure and stability. Our team comprises over 30 professionals with an average length of employment of 15 years. In addition, four dedicated supervisors have been employed with CCR for over 24 years each! Low turnover allows foster parents a plethora of support, and children develop trusting relationships with long-term staff without the risk of abandonment and disruption.

Many of our families care for siblings; others care for older children. Our goal is to help kids and youth heal from trauma histories. CCR foster parents across the state help kids grow and thrive using a trauma-informed parenting approach. 

Foster parent support services and weekly in-home visits.

A team approach and promised support are two reasons foster parents stay with CCR. We are the only foster agency in Wisconsin providing WEEKLY in-home support visits. In addition, 24/7 support is available to CCR families in all 60 Wisconsin counties we serve. A friendly voice, not a recorded prompt, will answer your call during business hours, and each of our four supervisors is available to their team whenever they need it.  

Prospective foster parents must ask these questions.

An abundance of support beyond state standards is how we ALL succeed!

  • 24/7 SUPPORT & Crisis Management - available when you need it most
