This year alone, we will assist more than 5,000 people - children, families, seniors - in our county.
Ozaukee Family Services provides assistance to people in need - free of charge or on a sliding scale - every day!
Your contribution means a great deal to the organization and the families who rely on our help to get them through some of the most difficult times in their lives.
For more than 40 years, we have touched thousands of people. This year alone, we will assist more than 5,000 people – children, families, seniors – in our county.
Perhaps we have touched you directly, or helped someone you love, or supported a friend in your church, or a family on your block. Because of the generosity of our donors no one is ever turned away because of an inability to pay for services.
With your support we can continue to keep families strong through our programs, including Parent Education and Support, Prevention Education, Affordable Counseling and Senior Services. Ozaukee Family Services is a non-profit agency, and we must rely on the generosity of our donors.
With your help we will continue to be there for the people who need us … improving lives to help families succeed.
