We are thrilled you are exploring how to become a foster parent. CCR encourages 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 kids. Our goal is to help children heal from trauma.
CCR foster kids have suffered prolonged abuse and neglect, requiring dedicated foster parents trained in trauma-informed care principles to help them heal. Please review the list below. If you meet each requirement, we would love to speak with you!
Being at home when foster kids are home provides much-needed structure and stability. 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 since 1989, and we know kids that have been neglected and abused heal best when a parent is present.
In addition, flexibility is required Monday-Friday between 8 am-4 pm for 2-3 appointments each week.
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.
