Ozaukee Family Services provides valuable support, guidance and education for families and individuals in need. Especially in economic hard times, where the bread winner in a family may have lost a job, OFS helps the children understand and cope with what can be a big adjustment in their lives. OFS will counsel parents to deal with the stress, tension or depression that can come from losing a job. Additionally, OFS will help with supplying vital items for infants if the parents cannot financially. These efforts help tremendously to lessen financial worries. Ozaukee Family Services is able to recruit and maintain a top notch staff who have the capability and skills to help families and individuals in need.

Joining the Fund Raising Auxiliary Board at Ozaukee Family Services has been a rewarding experience. The members are dedicated, they set high expectations for themselves to raise funds for the organization, and they truly care about one another.

After the death of my father I struggled with a way to use this difficult time to help others. I became a volunteer for Ozaukee Family Services and a facilitator for the nationally renowned Rainbows program, a support and counseling group for children who have experienced death or divorce in their family. The ages of the children in the program range from 4-teens. The format is helpful and enriching to the children, parents and facilitators - the children know they are not alone; have an outlet for their feelings and frustrations; and they learn new coping skills. As a facilitator I saw first-hand the good that I was doing. Through this program I saw how efficiently and effectively Ozaukee Family Services uses its financial and human resources to serve the community.

my careful review of how the organization raises money and uses those donations. Fiscal responsibility coupled with the strength of its programs gives me the utmost confidence in the organization and its ability to maintain its programs free of charge.
