Foundations Health & Wholeness Launches New Video Library for Foster Care Program

Posted on 5-02-2023

With the help of Green Bay’s NorthCoast Media Group, Foundations Health & Wholeness, a nonprofit organization, has launched a new video library on their website for their treatment foster care program. Each video was specially produced to answer frequently asked questions about aspects of the foster care journey from the initial licensing process to foster youth placement.

While these videos are useful to support our current foster families, they also help address the questions of prospective foster families.

“People often have a lot of questions before deciding to become a foster parent. Foster Care by Foundations is dedicated to offering high-quality support to our foster families at every step, including the early prospective stages before taking those first steps to become licensed, said Hiep Nguyen, Statewide Director of Foster Care at Foundations. “We want to address all your questions! This new foster care video library is just one more way Foster Care by Foundations can provide that extra cushion of information and support to potential foster families.”

Foundations Health & Wholeness

Foundations Health & Wholeness serves the community by healing mind and spirit through mental health counseling and foster care.

Mental Health Counseling

  • Our main clinic offers full range of mental health and addiction services.
  • We partner with social organizations in ten different locations to embed our therapists to serve children and adults with significant barriers to care, including those living in poverty, experiencing homelessness, the aging and people with disabilities. These satellite clinics offer an opportunity for us to train and supervise the next generation of licensed therapists and address the scarcity of licensed therapists in Wisconsin.
  • We also provide counseling at three public schools. We are the founder, and an active member, of Connections for Mental Wellness, a coalition of mental health care providers seeking to reduce the number of poor mental health days.

We provide approximately 12,000 mental health sessions every year, plus casual support, psycho-education, and over 500 hours of service on mental health tasks forces and committees. About 60% of our clients are either uninsured or under-insured, and we keep our doors open to everyone in need of mental health counseling.


In foster care, we recruit, license, and train foster parents. We work with counties throughout Wisconsin to provide placement and case management for children in need of loving foster homes. We provide treatment-level foster care to support children have experienced trauma, and have higher emotional and physical needs. Through our foster care offices in Green Bay, Greater Milwaukee area, Sheboygan/Lakeshore area, the Fox Valley, and soon Janesville, we serve over 130 children every year. The number of children we serve grows every year.
