Our Mission

Improving lives to help individuals and families succeed

Our Vision

OFS assists children, families and seniors in reaching their full potential.

Ozaukee Family Services is a non-profit agency that serves all of Ozaukee County with a mission of “Improving lives to help individuals and families succeed.” All services are free or offered on a sliding fee scale – no one is ever turned away because of the inability to pay.

Through a dedicated staff of 20, hundreds of volunteers and financial support from the community, OFS has quietly touched the lives of more than 150,000 local children, teens, adults and seniors since it was founded in 1974. Behind every number is a person – a husband, wife, mom, dad, grandparent, child. It started small, but over the years, this little agency has made a big difference by improving lives, families, neighborhoods, schools and communities.
