THE NEED FOR MORE FOSTER HOMES IS GREATER THAN EVER. OUR OFFICE IS OPEN.
Understanding the difference can be confusing but it generally comes down to one thing: Foster parent support services.
Community Care Resources is a statewide, treatment level Wisconsin foster agency providing local, in-home support services to both foster parents and foster children. Our foster parents can live in ANY county in Wisconsin and be licensed with us while receiving the benefits of 24/7 support from our professional staff. All children are referred to us from their county of origin, many are sibling groups and are in need of additional support and/or services that the county is unable to provide. Children range in age from 3-18 and most have significant trauma. CCR does not place children in emergency or short-term placements but focuses on healing so an average placement will last approximately 18-24 months. Our foster parents are highly trained in Trauma-Informed Care to better care for children and our Clinical Case Managers are required to have a Master's degree in social work to better serve the children.
Our goal is to make the fostering experience positive and rewarding for foster parents so they, in turn, can provide a healing environment for children. An abundance of support is how we succeed!
The CCR 24/7 hotline is available to all CCR foster parents. Staff can be reached to support you in an emergency situation during or after business hours.
Community Care Resources employees and foster parents are a family of quality-caring professionals. We know everyone’s name and personal story! We share, laugh and cry together, and we recognize what amazing parents we have on our team. Generous referral bonuses and the annual Wisconsin Dells celebration are some of the ways we show our appreciation to our foster parents in Wisconsin.
