Racine County Foster Care

Launches 'Bring Them Home' Campaign

Movement aims to keep Racine County foster children in the community

The Racine County Foster Care Program has launched a new campaign to help keep Racine County foster children in the community.

The Bring Them Home campaign has two central goals: to recruit and license new foster homes in Racine County and bring back local children who were placed in homes outside the county. The campaign comes as the county has experienced a foster care crisis, seeing both a rise in the number of children placed in foster care and a decline in local foster homes.

Keeping foster children in the community allows siblings to stay together and potentially shorten the length of time children are in out-of-home care. Siblings being separated from each other deepens the trauma facing foster children, who already are forced away from their family home.

The Bring Them Home campaign is a rebranding of the county’s foster care work. The effort includes a social media blitz, videos, grassroots outreach, advertising, and much more. Racine County Foster Care is working with filmmaker Joey Papa, who previously produced a short film, (Un)wanted, about the local foster care crisis.
