Service Providers Needed!!!

Bayfield County Human Services is experiencing a shortage of service providers to assist children with disabilities.  We are looking for: mentors, supportive home care workers, daily living skills coaches, respite providers, and in-home nursing staff.  We have several children with funding approved from the State of Wisconsin, but no people to provide the services they need.  Some of these services are needed on a daily basis, but others are only once or twice per month.  If you have experience working with people with special needs, or you have some extra time and kindness to share with a local family, we NEED YOU!  Please contact the Youth Services Coordinator, Kristin Opperman, at 715-373-6144 x122 or kopperman@bayfieldcounty.org.
