May is Foster Care Month

In recognition of the importance and appreciation of the over 4,000 foster families in Wisconsin, Governor Doyle has declared May as Foster Care Month. Over 6,500 children are living in out-of-home care in Wisconsin. As part of Foster Care Month, outstanding foster parents will receive recognition at an event in the Capitol on May 18, and the Department of Children and Families is launching a website campaign called “Fostering our Future” to increase awareness of foster families.
