Description:

The Fostering Healing Program seeks to strengthen the lives of children living with relatives or in foster care and whose young lives have been touched by severe neglect, abuse, violence, or crime. Educates the community and caregivers about the impact of such circumstances on children and by assisting these children and their caregivers in accessing the services the children need in order to heal. Caregivers frequently ask for assistance with medical insurance matters, legal and court proceedings, and victim compensation eligibility. They may also seek assistance in obtaining critical support services regarding medical, mental health, and school issues.  

Kids Matter CASA Program is an organization of volunteers that advocates for abused and neglected children in Milwaukee County Children's Court.  A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is appointed by the court to independently investigate the cases of these children and advocate for what is best for each child with the goal of a loving, safe and permanent home.

Fostering Hope Packages treat children who are entering foster care with dignity. The goal is to be able to provide each child with an appropriate bag (a backpack, gym bag or diaper bag) and something to call their own.
