Spring is so close, and yet so far. We have exciting updates to share with you that will hopefully keep our minds off of this dreary weather we've been having!
OFFICE HIGHLIGHT: WAUKESHA AREA OFFICE
In Waukesha county, our staff provides bilingual Behavioral Health services, bilingual Outreach and Case Management, In-Home Support / Hoarding Intervention + Treatment, Supported Parenting Services, and CQI.
PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT: CHILD WELFARE SERVICES
PREGNANCY + PARENTING SUPPORT
We recently re-designed the Pregnancy and Parenting Support program with our new brand guidelines. Be sure to take a look at them at our Milwaukee office!
Be on the lookout for our new materials as the year progresses. Sarah Werner will be reaching out to programs and working to re-vamp the agency's materials.
Our very own Sarah Chidester and a family we serve was featured in the 2019 Catholic Stewardship Appeal video. Fast forward to 1:48 to see how our services have blessed the Harris family!
One of our couples that we are working with recently created this video to showcase their life to our prospective birth mothers. We are continuously blown away by the creativity and commitment that these families have for loving their future children. We were touched by this video and thought you would like to get to know Travis + Ashlee!

Sharon Brumer, Parish Relations Coordinator, is retiring on March 29th, after 25 years with Catholic Charities. We thank her for her service and commitment to serving our clients, and blessings as she enters her well-earned retirement!
In February, we celebrated Steven Xiong and his 15 years of leadership and commitment to the Refugee Resettlement program. Below are photos captured from the lunch, where Steven spoke and some of our staff was able to come together in community to wish him well in retirement. Thank you Steven, for all that you have done here for Catholic Charities and the individuals that you impacted!
