Building the Future     

 

Ozaukee Family Services has been making an impact in Ozaukee County by providing vital services to children, teens, adults, and seniors since 1974. During that time, we have touched the lives of over 150,000 local people through various programs that provide education, counseling, and support to anyone living in Ozaukee County. Most of our programs are free, and we never turn anyone away due to an inability to pay.

We have outgrown our current space, and demand for our programs is outpacing our capacity to serve all who need us. We will be moving to 4922 Columbia Road in the Town of Cedarburg in early 2022. There are some major repairs that must be done on the new building including heating and cooling system replacement, a new roof, windows, and changing the layout to meet our needs. Our goal is to make this property a safe, welcoming, and trauma-sensitive environment where OFS will continue to advance its mission of Improving lives to help individuals and families succeed and help Ozaukee County remain a safe and healthy place to live and work.

Of course, we can’t do this without the financial support of the community. We are asking our supporters to consider investing in the future of Ozaukee Family Services and empower us to improve the lives of thousands more individuals and families in the coming years.

Your Chance to Save a Life

 

One of our long time Board Members, Dan Switalski, needs a kidney transplant. To help him find a donor, we invite you to visit his website where you will learn more about Dan, information about kidney donation, living donations, and how you can help.

Did you know?

  • You only need one kidney to live a healthy, long life.
  • Most donor surgery is done laparoscopically, meaning through tiny incisions.
  • The recuperation period is usually fairly quick, generally less than two weeks.
  • The cost of your evaluation and surgery will be covered by the recipient’s medical insurance.
