Grafton, WI – The Family Enrichment Center, a nonprofit organization that provides collaborative space and support to help sustain human service nonprofits in Ozaukee County, announced its official rebrand to Ozaukee Nonprofit Center on August 1st.
The Family Enrichment Center was started by three nonprofit agency directors in 1994 (Family Services of Mequon, COPE Services, and the Volunteer Center) with the hopes of sharing space and equipment. The organization’s facilities have since expanded in response to the increasing needs of the local community and nonprofit sector.
Today, this nonprofit organization has now grown to include the following 12 agencies in Grafton: Advocates of Ozaukee, Alzheimer’s Association Wisconsin Chapter, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ozaukee, COPE Services, Ozaukee Nonprofit Center, Habitat for Humanity Ozaukee, Home Energy Plus, Independence First, Interfaith Caregivers of Ozaukee, Mel’s Charities, Ozaukee Family Services, and Starting Point.
“Rebranding to Ozaukee Nonprofit Center enables us to connect with a wider audience, expand our programs and services, and be better positioned to serve the community,” said Jonah Turner, Board President of Ozaukee Nonprofit Center. “This new name represents our organization perfectly as it captures who we are today and sets us up for future growth and success.”
Carissa Barnes, Executive Director of Ozaukee Nonprofit Center, states, “I feel privileged to be leading our organization through this upcoming change. When we think about the nonprofit sector, some of the first organizations that come to mind are human service nonprofits. These organizations house the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor our youth, and more. Human service organizations make up one-third of the nonprofit sector in the United States. These organizations are vital to our community because they take care of the most vulnerable members of our society. At the same time, human service nonprofit organizations are some of the most financially vulnerable. One way we can navigate through this challenge is by working together at a one-stop human service center. When someone needs help, it can take a village to meet their needs. Because of shared space, reduction of individual agency overhead costs, and collaboration with our nonprofits, a network can mobilize for real impact.”
The Ozaukee Nonprofit Center is thankful for the help and collaboration with the logo and branding design from PKA Marketing, and website from Bublitz Creative.
