History The Family Enrichment Center (FEC) concept began in 1995 when several agencies shared space in the Cedar Mills building in Cedarburg. In 1999, the four participating agencies: COPE Services Administrative Offices, Ozaukee Family Services, United Way of Greater Milwaukee and the Volunteer Center of Ozaukee County moved to a larger facility at 885 Badger Circle in Grafton.
Currently, the FEC houses many more human service agencies. Our center is at full capacity and dreams of an expansion to allow more agencies to join our nonprofit family and increase the services available to the community. This collaboration has partnered agencies that help build strong families and improve the quality of life throughout Ozaukee County. The Family Enrichment Center began with a dream and now serves as a shining example of what a caring community can come together to accomplish.
