Why Foster Parents Choose Us

Why Foster Parents Choose Us

Wisconsin residents have choices beyond working with a county foster agency. Without a doubt, knowing what questions to ask about the differences is important. CCR staff is available to everyone exploring becoming a foster parent. First and foremost, we answer phone calls immediately when folks want to talk about how to become foster parents.

Outstanding support is promised and delivered at CCR.  Not only are foster parents supported each week with in-home visits but kids receive necessary support services and therapy as well. Above all, we know kids thrive in stable, loving homes when foster parents are fully supported.

Foster parents succeed with transparent communication.

Foster parents depend on a team approach.  Especially where trust and support are plentiful. We take great pride in near-immediate response times. A phone call is met by a friendly voice, not a prerecorded message. Case Managers answer their phones and return calls promptly. In addition, supervisors are available as additional resources to help foster parents succeed.

Attentiveness, quick response times, and weekly in-home allow our foster parents to do the best work possible. CCR foster parents depend on us 24/7 and we deliver our promise of round-the-clock support.

Ask these important foster care questions when choosing an agency:

  • How often will a caseworker visit the home?
  • Will calls be answered promptly to help after hours?
  • What type of services will be available to foster children with trauma?
  • Is there employee longevity or a revolving door of case managers?
  • Will I meet the children prior to accepting a placement?

While researching foster care agencies, be cautious of focusing too much on how to become a foster parent. The licensing process and required classes are a small part of the overall journey. Alternatively, focus on the journey of caring for children. What will a foster care agency do for you and your family AFTER children are placed in your care?

Weekly in-home support is critical for both foster parent and foster child
