In 2019 our Volunteer Drivers spent nearly 2,400 hours assisting children in the community get to their visits or appointments. As of today, our drivers have reported only 390 hours for all of 2020. Though there is nearly a 2,000 hour difference from last year, the need remains the same. If you are comfortable transporting children, please consider becoming a Volunteer Driver today!

*Drivers are reimbursed for mileage and provided with PPE.

We are in dire need of Volunteer Drivers to assist with transporting children to supervised visits with their parents. Like many programs, COVID-19 has impacted our ability to provide services to families. Of approximately 15 volunteer drivers, only two are currently able to take assignments. If you are at all interested in assisting, please contact us today. Drivers are reimbursed for mileage and can be provided with the supplies needed to reduce exposure during transports.

Friends of Pals is the recipient of the Weston Foods Fundraiser this year. That means for every dollar you donate to the Pals program through the link below, Weston Foods will match it!

The Pals Program matches children who are referred by Brown County Child Protective Services with an adult volunteer, couple, or family to be a mentor to help children adjust to the separation or loss of a parent, enhance self-esteem and confidence and learn new skills.

We are so fortunate to have Dana involved in our Pals Program and the Friends of Pals, Youth and Families. She is such a dedicated volunteer!

We are continuing with our Meet the Board series so you can learn a little more about Friends of Pals, Youth and Families and the people behind advancing its mission. Today's feature is on Dana Kressig, Corporate Sales Executive with the Green Bay Packers.

Dana has been a Pals volunteer for years and joined the board to help positively impact children in need in our community. Dana believes every child deserves a chance to learn, dream, have the structure and skills they need to be successful in life.

We appreciate all you do for Friends of Pals, Youth and Families, and the community, Dana!

In Brown County, and across the State of Wisconsin, there is a shortage of foster families available and willing to take placement of youth between the ages of 12-17. When local placement options are not available, youth are placed away from their communities, schools and supports. It is a priority of our county to ensure that our youth are able to remain in our community. Join us on Tuesday, November 17th at 6:00pm for a virtual information session, Fostering Teens, hosted by Brown County Health and Human Services Foster Care Coordinators, Shauna Escoto and Heather LaFave. Have you been thinking about giving back to your community? This is an excellent opportunity to learn how you can get involved! We will be discussing how to become a licensed foster parent or respite provider for teens who are right here in our community.

Please email [email protected] or call (920) 448-6272 to sign up to attend the virtual info session on November 17th @ 6:00pm. You will be sent a link to participate via Microsoft Teams.

Did you know that Brown County's Children, Youth & Families Division receives support from Friends of Pals, Youth & Families? This is one of our generous volunteer Board Members. Be sure to check out their page for more information about the group!

We are continuing with our Meet the Board series so you can learn a little more about Friends of Pals, Youth and Families and the people behind advancing its mission. Today's feature is on Krista Makos, Organizational Development Consultant at PAi Retirement Services.

Krista was part of the Leadership Green Bay team that helped fundraise for and facilitate the acquisition and renovation of the Brown County Health & Human Service's Family Center. Through that experience, Krista learned so much about what Brown County Health & Human Services - Public Health Division does and what some of the children in our county go through. We are grateful Krista jumped at the opportunity to join our board and make an impact on the lives of kids and families in our area.

Thank you for all you do for our community, Krista!

Did you know that our Department is actively seeking responsible volunteers to become guardians?

Volunteers are needed to become legal guardians for individuals found to be mentally incompetent by a physician and the court and unable to make decisions about their residence, health care, finances, and other legal decisions. These are individuals who either have no family member available or no appropriate family member to be their decision maker. Most of the clients legally known as "wards" live in a nursing home or other community based residential facility (CBRF).

Volunteers should see their ward at least once per month and be available by phone in case of emergencies.

Volunteers receive training and support from the Brown County Adult Protective Services Unit. A stipend of $15.00 per ward-per month, mileage, and reimbursement for expenses such as copying legal paperwork, postage is available upon request.

For more information, contact: Jenna Durkee, Social Worker/Volunteer Coordinator at (920) 448-6023 or [email protected]

Brown County Volunteer Programs:

Pals Program: Volunteer mentors spend time (2-3 times per month) in a recreational or learning activity with a child, age 3 or older, that has been referred by Brown County Child Protective Services. Volunteer mentors help the child adjust to the separation or loss of a parent, enhance self-esteem and confidence, and learn new skills. Matches are invited to attend a fun activity each month that is free of charge. Matches are based on compatibility and can continue for as long as both parties are interested, though the hope would be to have volunteers engaged with their Pal for a minimum of 1 year.

Family Interaction Program: Volunteers support children in out-of-home care by supervising the family interaction with their parents. The volunteers help to assure a safe and secure environment both physically and emotionally for the children. You have the ability to decide how often you would like to volunteer and can choose to accept or decline supervision requests.

Volunteer Drivers: Assist with transporting children and families safely to and from authorized visits and appointments. Drivers are reimbursed for their mileage. Volunteers must have a valid driver’s license and safe driving record.
