Statewide Treatment Foster Care

Kids Need Care Where They Are

At any given time in Wisconsin, there are more than 7,000 children in out-of-home care. It might surprise you to know that the majority of these kids aren’t in the biggest cities in the state; many are in towns and communities like yours.

One thing that makes foster care unique in smaller cities and rural communities is distance. Even homes that are just a county or two away can feel like a whole different world to a child.

Our goal is to find foster parents throughout Wisconsin and in enough corners of the state so that kids can stay close to their family, school, church, and friends.

Types of Homes Needed

SaintA specializes in trauma informed care and we provide educational opportunities for foster parents who care for children who have been exposed to trauma, abuse and neglect.

Treatment Foster Care
Children who have been exposed to trauma like abuse and neglect need more support to address their physical, behavioral and emotional needs. In Treatment Foster Care (TFC), families receive additional support and services to assist them in caring for their foster child.

Specialized Treatment Foster Care
Foster families in this program receive specialized training and supportive services from SaintA to help care for children who have been victims of sexual exploitation.

Respite Care
This is temporary foster care that gives parents or foster parents a break. Providers must be at least 18, meet home and sleeping requirements if a child is to stay overnight, and pass criminal and caregiver background checks. Some providers may be required to complete training specific to a child’s needs.
