Mequon MOMS Club Supports Ozaukee Family Services

May 31, 2010

MOMS Club of Mequon – East Chapter Raised Funds for Local Non-Profit Agency


Ozaukee Family Services received a donation of $570 from the MOMS Club of Mequon – East Chapter. The Moms group hosted a Papa Murphy’s fundraiser to benefit the local non profit agency.


With the current economy and stressful times, the MOMS group understands the demands on families and on non-profits organizations. “We are big supporters of Ozaukee Family Services including its PAT (Parents as Teachers) Program. We are happy to support them because they do so much for the community and what they do fits in well with what we do as a club,” according to Anne Roemke, the MOMS club administrative vice president. “Papa Murphy’s was great to work with as they are incredibly generous and very friendly.”


The Parents as Teachers program Roemke referred to is offered free of charge and assists parents in becoming their child’s best teacher through personalized home visits by trained parent educators. The educators share information on research and provide ideas and activities for stimulating the child’s development to coincide with opportunities for learning. On-going classes and workshops are also available to assist parents with a wide variety of issues. This program is open to all Ozaukee County residents with children from birth to 5 years old.


Ozaukee Family Services, whose mission is improving lives to help families succeed, assists families of all shapes and sizes through a myriad of programs. All programs are free or on a sliding fee scale – no one is ever turned away because of the inability to pay. Last year, Ozaukee Family Services touched the lives of more than 6500 people by providing:


• More than 700 home visits to families in the Parents as Teachers program

• Counseling for suicidal teens or families in crisis

• Rainbows support for children who are having a difficult time adjusting to a death or divorce in their family

• A caring volunteer or professional in the life of someone who has lost hope

• Senior citizens with rides to medical appointments and the grocery store

• Home visits for teens and their babies

• Internet safety and “cyber bullying” education for students
