Ministries growing to increase impact



Wisconsin Lutheran Child & Family Services (dba Christian Family Solutions) has been healing and helping people in need through the ministry of Jesus Christ since 1965. The Youth Counseling Initiative provides trauma-informed and culturally sensitive therapy to children living in Milwaukee’s underserved neighborhoods. Children served are commonly diagnosed with disruptive behavior disorders, mood disorders, impulse-control problems, and trauma, and they exhibit behaviors that pose harm to themselves and others. Christian Family Solutions collaborates with 17 Milwaukee schools to make mental health treatment accessible to students and their families.


Primary Focus Area: Urban in-school counseling and STRONG day-treatment programs

Lutheran Affiliation: WELS

Location: W175 N11120 Stonewood Drive, Germantown, WI 53022


Funding will support: "Christian Family Solutions operates the STRONG day treatment program for students who need more intensive intervention. This early intervention has positive ripple effects in the community, as children are able to stay in school and live out their God-given purpose in their families and communities. The children we serve are commonly diagnosed with disruptive behavior disorders, mood disorders, impulse-control problems, and trauma.


STRONG is a higher level of care, and is the only day treatment program in Milwaukee that serves youth ages 4-14. No other option for this level of care exists for kids in our area because of low Medicaid reimbursement and high provider burn out. We are in the process of renovating two areas of our current building. By dividing larger rooms, we will be able to add therapy groups and accommodate an additional 33 youth. We also plan to embark on a large capital campaign in the next year, which will help fund larger renovations to not only our STRONG building, but, Lord willing, the entire northeast corner of Holton and Burleigh."
