La Crosse County takes advantage of comedy “Instant Family” to teach about foster care

Wisconsin kids in the foster care system could get some help with a new movie.

The comedy “Instant Family” features a couple who go from having no kids to adopting three.

The La Crosse County is taking advantage of the movie by setting up foster care and adoption information at Marcus Cinema in La Crosse. The information includes 5 local programs that help kids.

“Whether that’s a mentor program that we have locally, or whether it’s through actually helping out with foster care, there’s many different ways you can make a positive impact on a child,” said La Crosse County Human Services Foster Care Champion Bill Robbins.

The County plans on reserving a theater in the coming days for a screening of the movie with people that are interested in foster care. A date for that screening has not been set.

Those interested in foster care can learn more on the La Crosse County’s website.
