I've fostered for multiple counties and can honestly say that there is nothing like having your own caseworker and loads of support we get with CCR.

Support Services

Every foster parent receives weekly, in-home support

Support begins while you’re exploring becoming a foster parent and deciding which agency to select. We walk you through the details and explain the differences in working with a private foster agency. Once you begin the process to get your foster license, the support continues. We hold your hand and present all material with full transparency so you will be informed and confident upon making your decision to become a foster parent in Wisconsin. We promise to be honest and helpful in all aspects of your journey. Community Care Resources has been supporting foster parents since 1989.

We understood the support we would get

Weekly support comes in the form of in-home visits. Other agencies might provide monthly visits to their foster parents but here at CCR we believe that weekly visits are imperative. These one on one meetings are key in helping a child heal from past trauma and in offering foster parents unparalleled support. This scheduled visit is spent with an assigned and dedicated clinical case manager (CCM) and oftentimes a therapist, depending on the needs of the children in care. With exceptional low employee turnover, many of our foster parents have had the same caseworker assigned to their home for 10, 15 and 23 years! You can expect your CCM to answer your texts, take your late calls and share in your joys and frustrations. After hours, case managers are available through our 24/7 on-call hotline. Our entire staff works for the best interests of the foster children and the foster parents.

Paid vacations and respite care

We provide 2 days of respite care, per child, per month. If you have more than one child placed in your home you may use the hours how you wish in ½ day increments. Our foster parents love the generous, 6 paid vacation days per year, per household too! We understand how important it is to get a break!

Teachers, coaches and case managers work as a team

Twice per month, our Clinical Case Managers collaborate with teachers, coaches, and school professionals to plan for success, measure progress, review a child’s IEP and address concerns. Extracurricular activities and sports play an important role in the development and healing of the whole child. We repeatedly see coaches and school staff go the extra mile for our kids on and off the field. Bi-monthly visits with youth take place in the school.

Psychological evaluations and consultations are provided for all foster youth being served in our Wisconsin foster care program by Dr. Donna Rifken, PH.D. Interventions, consultations, and support are also available to our families caring for traumatized youth.

Our full-time, experienced trainer offers training opportunities in many regions of Wisconsin such as West Bend, Eau Claire, Burlington, Westfield and Middleton. County trainings are held monthly, and online trainings are always available. In addition to our full-time trainer, educational opportunities are also presented by Master’s Level Clinicians. Foster parents find the trainings interesting, informative and a great way to connect and share with other foster parents.

Count on our experienced team to be available when you need us

There is always someone available from our experienced team to help you solve a problem, assist in scheduling respite care or just to answer a small question. We will not let you walk alone, and we will not abandon you on your journey. We Promise.
