The Building for Kids empowers children, engages parents and energizes communities. As a not-for-profit children’s museum, we accomplish this mission through providing a safe space for families to learn through play by exploring hands-on, educational exhibits, as well as curriculum-based classes for field trips, special programs and family events.
WisconSibs, Inc. is the first independent not-for-profit in the country dedicated to the interests of siblings of people with developmental disabilities like autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, as well as long-term illnesses and mental health concerns from childhood through adulthood. We serve siblings through workshops, Sib Camps, Teen Sibling Leadership programs, social activities for families of children with disabilities, and future planning and peersupport as siblings become adults. Founded in 1998 as the Fox Valley Sibling Support Network, the name was changed in 2014 to more clearly define those served by the organization.
