Posted on 8-20-2020
2020 is more than halfway over and it’s been quite a stressful year. It’s time to paint some joy into Green Bay; Literally.
Foundations Health & Wholeness is creating a mural on the low wall in front of their mental health clinic on West Mason Street in Green Bay. The picture above contains a clue about the theme of the surprise mural.
We need to raise $1862 to make the mural a reality. The good news is that a generous local family has already pledged to support HALF the cost of the mural! Will you join this family and help us create a mural of joy?

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.
