WE DESPERATELY NEED FOSTER HOMES WITH FLEXIBLE SCHEDULES FOR KIDS AGES 10-18.
Kids in treatment foster care have experienced physical abuse, sexual abuse, prolonged neglect, and/or significant loss. Each child has an emotional, personal story with different levels of trauma tied to their past. The majority of children need and benefit from additional services, including therapy. CCR is proud to be on the cutting edge of treatment programs for kids and adolescents.
Emotional problems in youth range from mild to severe. Foster parents are encouraged to have preferences on what ages and types of behaviors they are most comfortable fostering. It is important to understand that ALL foster children have trauma. There is a wide range of emotions and behaviors that develop when a child is abused or neglected. Wisconsin uses a tool commonly known as CANS to assess a child's needs. Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) Assessment Tool
Our foster parents are well prepared to care for kids at many need levels. It takes consistent parenting skills, supportive school staff, and routine therapy to care for children with trauma histories successfully. All CCR foster homes receive weekly home visits and bi-weekly school visits to support both parent and child. Helping children heal from trauma requires a flexible schedule, patience, and an abundance of love to share. Qualify to be a foster parent and experience for yourself the joy of helping a child heal from within.
Community Care Resources provides continuous training for foster parents, so they are equipped to help children feel confident. Our promise to all foster parents is to provide transparent communication. Each of our foster parents is part of a larger team helping their foster child(ren) heal.
We want you to be informed, comfortable, and confident in your decision to open your heart and home to foster children. We encourage you to call us to learn more.
