The Child and Family Services Unit provides a continuum of care from counseling through institutional care. These services are family-focused to resolve issues related to either delinquency, or children with special care and treatment needs. Child Protective Services involve investigations of suspected abuse or neglect and on-going services to children who have been abused or neglected.

Programs available are:
  • Assessment of Child Abuse and Neglect Referrals
  • In-Home Family Counseling
  • Parent-Aide Program
  • Juvenile Court System
  • Work/Restitution Program
  • Foster Home Care
  • Group Home Care
  • DO NOT use email to report a suspected abuse. Call 715-732-7700

    May is National Foster Care Month and this marks a special time of year to raise awareness about the needs of nearly 7,500 children and youth in the foster care system in Wisconsin and to celebrate the thousands of dedicated foster families, social workers and service providers who care for these youth.

     To learn more about becoming a foster parent, visit or you can contact Denise Kunze, foster care coordinator, directly at 715-732-7799 or


    • Every month in Wisconsin, between 350-400 children are removed from their birth parents due to neglect or abuse. 
    • The need is ongoing but, over the past two years, has been increasing by an additional 500 children over the average each year (a 27% increase over the previous average). 
    • After a foster child turns eight, he or she is more likely to stay in foster care than become adopted. 
    • Every two hours in Wisconsin, a child enters into foster care because of neglect, abuse, or drugs and alcohol in the home.
