We are happy you are exploring how to become a foster parent with us. We welcome anyone, from any of the 60 county locations we serve to explore the 3 levels of foster care we offer. Our goal is to help children heal from trauma while in a safe, stable, loving foster home. CCR foster kids have suffered prolonged abuse and/or neglect and they require dedicated foster parents trained in trauma-informed care principals to help them heal.
Please review the list below. If you meet each requirement we would love to speak with you!
Yes, our flexibility requirement is more stringent than other agencies. It may seem like a lot for us to ask, and it is. However, programs such as before and after school care, daycare, and summer camps are not always successful environments for kids with trauma histories. We have helped thousands of kids and teens over the last 31 years. We have proven that structure, stability, and predictable routines and schedules are crucial to a child'a ability to heal.
In addition, flexibility is required Monday-Friday for transporting or participating in 2-3 appointments each week.
We require foster parents to be available to their kids when they are not in school. We have many single teachers & school staff, small business owners, couples working different shifts, self-employed foster parents, retired folks, and many others. Let's talk about your schedule.
