Clark County recognizes foster families
For Hub City Times
NEILLSVILLE – May is National Foster Care Month, a month to acknowledge foster parents, family members, volunteers, mentors, and community members who help youth in foster care find permanent homes and meaningful connections.
During National Foster Care Month, we celebrate a commitment to ensuring a bright future for more than 430,000 youth in foster care.
During National Foster Care Month, Clark County Social Services is acknowledging the individuals who make a difference in the lives of children and families throughout the year.
“We applaud the caring commitment and continued support of foster parents to the families and children of Clark County,” said Clark County Foster Care Coordinator
Georgette Teschner. “Without the ongoing efforts of the foster parents, relative caregivers, mentors, advocates, social workers, and volunteers, too many children would end up facing life’s challenges all alone.
“Clark County Social Services appreciates your dedication and compassion while changing lifetimes.”
In honor of National Foster Care month, Clark County is recognizing the following foster families: Andrews, Cleveland, Donahue, Freese, Hackelberg, Hays-Maakestad, Hebert, Hineline, Gunn, Guzman, Kopf, Kovalaske, Letvinuck (Johnson-Cole), Loos, Nestrud, Olson, Opelt, Peterson, Petke, Raether, Schlough, Stevens, Taylor , and Zimmerman.
