Foster care in Wisconsin
At any given time, 6,000 children are in foster care in Wisconsin.
Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Community Services is responsible for the recruitment, licensing and support of foster and adoptive parents.
Children who need foster and adoptive homes come from diverse backgrounds and have a wide range of needs. We are looking for diverse and nurturing foster and adoptive parents to meet those needs.
We offer a team approach, providing foster parents with support services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our highly skilled staff members have small case loads and personally see and interact with every child.
About 2,000 children are in foster care
in Milwaukee County. As many as 100 children are removed from their homes each month. These kids need the love and support of foster parents until they can return home or they are adopted. We recruit, train and provide support services for foster families.
Our licensed providers throughout Wisconsin offer short-term
childcare to give biological or foster parents a break from the responsibilities of caring for children with special medical or behavioral needs. Taking time away reduces stress and supports family stability.
