About

Our Mission

At St. Francis Children’s Center, our mission is to serve and educate children with special needs in inclusive environments, enabling them to reach their greatest potential.

In 1968, St. Francis Children’s Center started with one belief…the earlier children with special needs received assistance, the more opportunities there would be for them to achieve success.

Today, St. Francis Children’s Center is a nonprofit, non-sectarian organization that serves 800 children — from birth through high school — and their families throughout the Milwaukee area.

We are a team of educators, social workers, therapists and administrators devoted to working with children of all abilities–those with special needs and those who are typically developing–to ensure that all children have the tools needed to reach their goals.
