FISC Fees Waived for Participants
FISC has agreed to waive the fees for any of our participants who would like to receive financial counseling. This can be especially helpful for those with large back child-support issues. Working with an agency like FISC might help them to get on a better payment plan, etc.
To get started:
The FISC contact person and number for the Green Bay is Eileen Hermus-Gossen — 920-569-8596 or [email protected].
Tell her that you’d like to make an appointment; they have to let them know that they are a Circle of Support participant. It’s very important that they say this, so the fee can be waived. She will then be sent a packet of paperwork to fill out. Once returned, an appointment will be set up.
(To speed up this process, paperwork packets are available for all facilitators/intake people.)
Food banks in the Green Bay region
Get free food, such as canned goods, breads, and dairy products. Many of the centers also distribute clothing, personal items, and household products. Food banks can often help people apply for government programs such as SNAP food.
Clinics in Green Bay
Most services offered at the clinics and health centers are free to income-qualified patients. Some comprehensive health care services include physicals, dental care for people with no insurance, medical, pharmacy and prescription drugs, optical, family practice, diabetes care, internal medicine and more.
