Wisconsin counties including Door County need more foster parents to care for children facing challenges at home. The Door County Department of Health and Human Services says there are currently 10 children in foster care and 13 licensed Foster homes. Doreen Goddard, Manager of Children and Family Child Protection and Youth Services, says there is always a need for foster homes to help children and, at times, other foster families.
Goddard says sometimes foster children need to be placed in age-specific homes or with those who can handle special needs. She adds that candidates from all walks of life can become foster parents.
Anyone interested in becoming a foster parent in Door County can contact the Department of Health and Human Services office at the Door County Government Center on Nebraska Street in Sturgeon Bay.
