We facilitate equity, learning, healing and wellness by restoring the connections that help children and families thrive.
About UsWe strive to address the impact of trauma, prevent adversity and promote resilience for the people in our care. Headquartered in Milwaukee, we empower people to overcome barriers to well-being – poverty, poor educational outcomes, unemployment and discrimination, to name a few – so they may thrive.
Wellpoint Care Network serves 5,000 Wisconsin children, youth and adults each day, helping to build life skills, access needed resources and navigate systems of care.
We use a framework that promotes the five pillars of stability and a trauma informed perspective.
In 2020, we celebrated 170 years of serving the community. Our rich history dates back to Milwaukee’s earliest days, beginning in 1850.
Our Commitment to YouWellpoint provides services to all children without discrimination on the basis of religion, race, color, national origin, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state or local law.
We recognize the value of diversity and our practices respect any cultural need(s) as defined by our consumers. Our organization is committed to this statement by responding to these needs prior to enrollment and throughout the service tenure of a consumer.
Workplace Equity and Inclusion StatementIn addition to our commitment to our clients, we have made a commitment to our staff and community as a whole. Our Workplace Equity and Inclusion Statement was approved by our Board of Directors in May 2017 and outlines our dedication to inclusivity in the workplace and celebrating the differences in our identities.
We’re committed to increasing diversity in our staff, leadership and Board of Directors. We aim to create a safe and open environment for the families we serve, enhance vendor diversity and engage in reconciliation efforts on issues that disproportionately affect historically traumatized populations.
