What began in 1972 in a small house between 10th & 11th Streets on Greenfield Avenue has evolved into Wisconsin's largest bilingual, multicultural childcare agency, La Causa, Inc. Now a comprehensive social services agency, La Causa's mission is to provide children, youth and families with quality, comprehensive services to nurture healthy family life and enhance community stability. La Causa, Inc. provides childcare, K3 – 8th Grade education, child abuse prevention, social services, and child welfare programs to children and families in one of the least advantaged, yet diverse, areas of Milwaukee. Some of the nonprofit organization’s initiatives include a dual language Charter School, Wisconsin’s first bilingual childcare center accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, a Family Resource Center and a 24-hour Crisis Nursery. With each passing year, La Causa strives to provide innovative solutions to the growing needs for childcare and family services in urban Milwaukee. Programs are funded through service fees, government contracts/grants and philanthropic support. We invite and encourage you to partner with us in making a positive impact on the lives of those in need.
