Nonprofit of the Year – Large: Curative Care

Since 1919, Curative Care has offered therapy and rehabilitation services, along with job and life skills education, to more than 200,000 Milwaukee-area children and adults with disabilities.

Curative Care was founded by occupational therapy educator Elizabeth Upham Davis, who worked to rehabilitate patients in military hospitals during World War I, and the Junior League. A century later, the organization continues Upham’s mission of compassionate care through more than a half-dozen programs, including pediatric care management services, adult day services and outpatient therapy services.

Curative’s programs have received recognition from the Wisconsin Center for Performing Excellence.

“Drawing upon our rich tradition of caring and service, Curative continues to use creativity and innovation as it adapts to the growing needs of people with disabilities or other limiting conditions in our community today and in the future,” said Michele Weinschrott, Curative Care director of development.
