Brown-County-Courthouse

Brown County Commissioners will consider approving a contract to facilitate a parent support group utilizing opioid grant funding on Tuesday, Aug. 18. Brown County was originally allocated about $30,000 for a six-month period. The allocation was reduced and Brown County was awarded $11,051 for July 1-Dec. 31, 2020 and $17,365 for all of 2021. Brown County submitted an agency plan proposing a parent support group for mothers affected by substance use. The plan includes hiring a group facilitator who will plan and organize two meetings a month. The group will include mothers receiving social service case management and will include individual time with mothers and parent/child time. The facilitator will also arrange community presentations and information on sober supports and family activities. The contract may be renewed for an additional calendar year.
