Meet Karli! Karli is a new muppet on @sesamestreet who lives with her “for-now” parents, Dalia and Clem. #fosterparents "Sometimes, even mommies and daddies need some help taking care of their children," Dalia says in a Sesame Street video, explaining the role of foster parents to Elmo. "Karli’s mommy has been having a hard time, so we are her foster parents or her for-now-parents. We will keep her safe until her mommy can take care of her again.” The new initiative is part of the show's Sesame Street in Communities program. #fostercare photo credit - @sesamestreet Learn more about foster parenting at wellspringfostercare.com

We are so thankful to have received this $5,000 grant to support the children in foster care we serve at Wellspring in Otsego County. A big thank you to the Otsego Community Foundation! Wellspring was awarded this grant last week at the 100+ Women Who Care event. "It was an incredible feeling to have been awarded the grand prize at this event to continue supporting our Otsego County foster youth," says Marissa Luck, Wellspring foster care case manager. "This grant funding will continue to help us provide normalcy to our youth and aid our foster parents in supporting the youth. As a foster care case manager for Wellspring Lutheran Services for the past six years, it brought joy to me to see how much our community cares about the youth and families that we serve."

In response to the country’s growing mental health crisis, which impacts people across the age spectrum, Wellspring Lutheran Services has launched a new behavioral health division. Leading the charge will be Brian Spitsbergen, who holds a doctorate in counselor education from Oakland University, and brings executive leadership experience in the development of innovative community-based behavioral health and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment for adolescents, adults and their families. This is important work, especially when you consider an estimated 43 million Americans have a mental health condition. In addition, 2 million face disorders related to prescription and nonprescription opioid addiction. And each day 130 Americans die from opioid overdoses. “Wellspring has spent the last 125 years tending to the physical and spiritual needs of the families we serve. By establishing the behavioral health division, we will be extending the care to provide emotional and behavioral support — looking at the needs of the whole person, as well as their role within a family,” says Dave Gehm, Wellspring president and CEO. Currently, Wellspring offers the Substance Use Disorder Family Support Program in Clare, Gladwin, Isabella and Midland counties. Wellspring also offers eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy, an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively research and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. In addition, Wellspring offers parent child interaction therapy, a short-term parent coaching program designed to increase positive parent-child interactions for families with young children.
