Why Foster Parents Choose Us

Why DO Foster Parents Choose CCR

When you join CCR, you become part of a welcoming, supportive community. Our compassionate team and dedicated foster parents from across Wisconsin are a family. We trust, respect, and support each other while focusing on the children in our care. The children and youth at CCR require treatment foster care services to promote healing. We appreciate our foster parents' hard work to create a nurturing and safe environment for every foster child entering their home. Our round-the-clock support from a dedicated team of professionals gives our foster parents the power to do what they do best. Provide care and love for some of Wisconsin's most vulnerable children.

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

As one of Wisconsin's largest private foster agencies, we have supported hundreds of families to help thousands of kids. For 33 years, our foster parents and highly experienced team have helped children of all ages heal from past traumas. We do this by hiring and retaining the best possible staff and recruiting families from all over the state, willing to accept the joys and challenges of fostering children from hard places. Consistency is vital in creating successful outcomes for our families and the children in their care. Our team is comprised of 30 professionals with an average length of employment of 16 years. Low turnover allows foster parents and children to develop trusting relationships with long-term staff without the risk of abandonment and disruption.

From the minute you make contact, you'll understand the family environment, professional experience, and promise of support we offer foster parents.

Foster parents receive weekly in-home visits and 24/7 support.

A team approach and promises kept are two reasons our families stay with CCR. 24/7 support is promised to all CCR families in all 60 Wisconsin counties that we serve. A friendly voice, not a recorded prompt, will answer your call during business hours. In addition, a Clinical Case Manager is always available to help in the evening or on the weekend. Each of our supervisors is also available to their team whenever needed. 

To consider a foster agency, the right questions must be explored. 

Prospective foster parents must ask these questions.

  • Will I get honest information and the history of kids placed in my home?
  • Will I know what a child's level of care is?
  • How often will a caseworker visit my home?
  • What happens if there is an emergency after hours?
  • What type of treatment services will be available to foster children?
  • How are foster care placements decided?
  • Will I meet the children before accepting a placement?
  • What will the foster care agency do for me AFTER children are placed in my home?

This is how we do it at CCR!

  • WEEKLY in-home visits - counties generally provide monthly visits
  • 24/7 SUPPORT & Crisis Management - available when we are needed most
  • MASTERS level Clinical Case Managers - a CCR employment requirement
  • TRAUMA-INFORMED CARE TRAINING - continuous throughout your journey
  • MEET THE KIDS before accepting or declining a placement
  • PLANNED PLACEMENTS - no more bouncing home to home
  • CHILD PSYCHOLOGIST and on-staff therapists
  • LOW EMPLOYEE TURNOVER - Our Case Manager's average length of employment is 16 years!

An abundance of support beyond state standards is how we ALL succeed! Learn more about the requirements to be a foster parent
