Foster Care Academy

Advocates’ Treatment Foster Care Program – Foster Care Academy – is licensed by the State of Wisconsin as a Child Placing Agency, providing Level 3 and 4 treatment foster care in licensed foster homes throughout Northeast Wisconsin.

AHTL has licensed homes in Brown, Door, Kewaunee, Oconto, Shawano, Manitowoc, and Outagamie counties.  AHTL’s foster homes are highly skilled and experienced in working with youth struggling with depression, anxiety, self-harming behaviors, anger issues, sexual offending behaviors, and trauma.

Thinking about becoming a foster parent? It may sound intimidating, but Advocates builds a supportive village around each foster family to help support the unique needs of each child placed in our care. Foster parents are also trained to recognize and address some of the most common challenges our kids bring. It's this team work philosophy that makes the difference.

Our partnerships with counties throughout Wisconsin, including (but not limited to) Brown, Door, Florence, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Marathon, Menominee, Oconto, Sheboygan, Waupaca and Winnebago allow Advocates to provide collaborative case management services, in home therapy, respite and crisis intervention services, and one-size-fits-one solutions.
