Foster Parent Hero of the Month: Megan and Jon Burdick April 2021 Interested in becoming a Racine County Foster Parent, contact Jessica Scheeler at 262-638-6595 or jessica.scheeler@racinecounty.com Or register for the next Info Session: April 21st at 5:30pm via Zoom. Jon and I got married and moved back to Racine in 2007; Jon grew up in Racine. We have two children, Archie who is 7 and Aspen who is 5. We are both very involved in the community as teachers and coaches at Park and Horlick High School respectively. Seeing Racine and the people here thrive is important to us. We’ve recently started fostering children as another way to give back to our community and provide a safe and caring environment for children while in transition. Adding more children to our home has been a valuable and positive experience for our family and the children we temporarily care for, although it can be exhausting at times! It has helped us to become more patient and empathetic and has done the same for our children. We hope to continue to provide this service for years to come for the children of OUR community.
