Ten basic requirements must be met to become a foster parent with CCR. We encourage anyone from any of the 60 Wisconsin county locations we serve to apply to be a foster parent. We license homes at three levels of foster care, so there is a place for everyone who wants to help Wisconsin kids. Our goal is to help children heal from trauma.

Additionally, flexibility is required Monday-Friday between 8am - 4pm for 2-3 appointments each week, including:
CCR requires foster parents to be available when foster kids are NOT in school. We have many teachers & school staff, small business owners, couples working different shifts, self-employed foster parents, retired folks, and foster parents working from home. Let's talk about your schedule.
