Just Days Left to Make an Ethics In Action Awards Nomination!

The 2020 Ethics in Action Awards nomination period closes at Midnight on Sunday, May 31st

This is the 13th year Foundations Health & Wholeness has celebrated ethical leaders in our community. This year we are focusing on the individual stories of ethical leadership that happen in Brown County every day. We want to recognize individuals who have worked to create a healthy neighborhood, workplace, or school.

We know you know a teen or adult who has made, or is making, a positive impact in our community!

Here are just a few examples:

  • Have you noticed someone drawing on their core ethical values to make life better for others?
  • Is there someone you know who has risen to meet the challenges presented by COVID-19 (students helping students, neighbors helping neighbors, individuals stepping up to help at-risk populations, volunteer sewers making masks, retired medical professionals who made themselves available, a teacher who made driveway visits to their students, etc.)
  • Has someone’s selfless act impacted you?
  • Has someone in your neighborhood paid it forward in a unique way?
  • Do you know a student who took a stand against bullying or did something courageous to help others?

We know that there are so many other inspiring stories out there! We would be so privileged if you would share these stories with us, so we can lift them up, honor these individuals and inspire others with their actions!

Help us honor these individuals and inspire others with their stories of action! Nominate someone today at https://wearefoundations.org/ethics-in-action/

Nominations accepted through May 31st.  

Contact Jenn at jsteffen@wearefoundations.org with any questions.

 

 

 

 

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.

FOSTER CARE

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.

 

Foundations Health & Wholeness. The three words in our name relate around approach to care:

  • Foundations – we are here to walk with people has they strengthen the foundations of their mind and spirit
  • Health – Mental health is a key component of overall health and well-being. The World Health Organization defines health as, “A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being & not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
  • Wholeness – Wholeness is unity. It’s a personal state of forming a complete and harmonious life.
