F.O.S.T.E.R. of Dane County

(Families Overcoming Struggles To Encourage Restoration)

Helping marginalized families in the Madison/Dane County community since 2003.

Who We Are

F.O.S.T.E.R. (Families Overcoming Struggles To Encourage Restoration) is a wraparound case management program which seeks to address the needs of families, single-parent households, those at risk of involvement in the foster care system, and/or parent(s) of those who have been incarcerated.

What We Do

FOSTER provides a variety of community services including: food, clothing, help with essential household items, and in some cases medication copays and transportation costs. We also sometimes assist with rent, security deposits, utilities, and other needs on a case by case basis to ensure the families in our community have their basic needs met.
