Nonprofit of the Year – Large: La Causa

Last updated on March 17th, 2020 at 01:35 pm

La Causa, Inc. has come a long way since its modest beginnings in 1972.

What began as a small bilingual day care center serving Milwaukee’s Latinx community has expanded into one of Milwaukee’s primary multicultural agencies.

La Causa offers numerous services and educational resources, all offered in English and Spanish, to thousands of children and adults in the Milwaukee area.

The organization includes six divisions and 25 programs, including the Crisis Nursery and Respite Center for children experiencing homelessness, domestic violence and other traumas, and professional administrative, human resources, marketing, and accounting support services. Other facets of La Causa include the Early Education and Care Center (EECC), and youth and adult social services divisions.

La Causa Charter School, which provides bilingual instruction to nearly 800 children from K4 through 8th grade, also incorporates activities to build science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) skills.
