WE DESPERATELY NEED FOSTER HOMES WITH FLEXIBLE SCHEDULES FOR KIDS AGES 10-18.
Kids in treatment foster care have experienced some level of trauma due to physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, and/or significant loss. Many are siblings. Each child has an emotional, personal story with different levels of trauma tied to their past which determines behaviors in the present. County foster care agencies refer children to us when they do not have a home available to meet the needs of the children or they are unable to place a sibling group in a home together.
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. All new foster parents begin with level 2 (basic) foster children, although the lower level, these children do present behaviors and emotions due to trauma. With experience, it is your choice to move to a higher level of foster care.
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 successfully care for children with trauma histories. 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 here

Our promise to all foster parents is to provide transparent communication. Each of our foster parents is part of a larger team in helping their foster child(ren) heal.
