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.
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.
