Kent County is introducing a new program this weekend intended to improve outcomes for foster care children. This Kent County private/public partnership will change how foster care services are delivered.
The pilot program is called West Michigan Partnership for Children or WMPC. It will link local childcare agencies like Bethany Christian Services, Catholic Charities West Michigan, D.A. Blodgett/St. John’s, Samaritas, and Wellspring Lutheran Services with county services Network 180, the 17th Circuit Court and the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services.
