Dear Friend of Family Service,
Last fall, a young father of two experienced mental health symptoms after a Waukesha Christmas Parade victim landed
at the feet of his three-year-old. A Family Service therapist was able to utilize behavioral treatment methods to help him
resolve grief and emotional trauma symptoms in just a few sessions. Family Service’s team of highly skilled therapists
has served 46 victims of the Waukesha Christmas parade tragedy. Family Service has unified with the community in
resiliency and remains Waukesha Strong.
Family Service has a 57 year long history of providing services to underserved clients, including those struggling with
financial hardship. From 2021 to 2022, there were 2,649 more counseling sessions held in both schools and clinical
locations, batterer intervention groups doubled, parenting education class attendance continued to grow, and The C.A.R.E. Center continued to provide services to victims of crime. With increasing financial pressures during uncertain economic times, Family Service remains dedicated to our decades long mission – effectively and efficiently serving those in need.
In 2022, because of the generosity of our donors, Family Service was able to relocate both the adult and children’s clinics, bringing a more central location to the community we serve while streamlining services and finding efficiencies. In 2023, Family Service is focusing on upgrading technology; manual, paper-based processes are outdated and labor intensive. Technological advances will further allow Family Service to operate more systematically, communicate more seamlessly with clients and supporters, and better allocate staff resources.
As a Friend of Family Service, please consider a donation in support of programming, the ever-increasing number of
clients who cannot afford the cost of care, and the vital technological upgrades needed to keep Family Service operating
at maximum efficiency.
