WCS has consistently strengthened Milwaukee neighborhoods by giving the community’s most disenfranchised residents the tools they need to be healthy, law-abiding, productive citizens.
Since 1912, thousands of individuals across the state of Wisconsin have taken part in WCS programs or projects. Although these individuals are different in many ways, they share something in common: ALL HAVE EXPERIENCED SIGNIFICANT ADVERSITY.
Through research-based and time-tested programs, WCS provides opportunities for individuals to overcome their adversity whenever possible.
WCS’ services focus on prevention/intervention for adults and youth who are at-risk of becoming involved in the criminal justice system, and successful community/family reintegration for those who have already been involved in the system.
