We believe in the power of a building to improve the inhabitants’ quality of life. On average, people spend over 90 percent of their life in buildings. We operate our facility to provide a healthy and inspiring place for our partner agencies and events. The Ozaukee Nonprofit Center believes buildings exist to improve peoples’ lives. Heating and cooling methods and the layout of spaces are just a few aspects of a structure which can impact peoples’ mental and physical health.

- Diaper Bank – Located near our front entrance and available during open office hours M-Th: 9AM-4PM and Fr: 9am – noon. Across the U.S., diaper need, the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a child clean, dry, and healthy, remains a serious issue that directly impacts the physical, mental, and economic well-being of millions of children and families. According to the National Diaper Bank Network, 1 in 3 American families with small children reports experiencing diaper need. Since diapers can cost anywhere between $70 to $80 a month per baby, most parents who experience diaper need must decide on whether they can provide diapers or some other necessity for their families that month.
