Intergenerational Care Center

Brookfield, WI

Why St. Coletta?

Established by the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi-Milwaukee over a century ago, we strive to provide consumer-driven programs and services that consistently meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.
As one of the oldest organizations in the country, we are dedicated to upholding the rights of persons with disabilities so they may be included in all aspects of life, participate as full citizens and receive the support they require for a quality life. At St. Coletta we are strongly committed to cultivating both an internal and external sense of community. Connections with the communities in which we live and work are equally as important as nurturing the internal connections between clients, staff, families and benefactors.

Why Intergenerational Care?

The makeup of our society is rapidly changing as the aging population increases at an unprecedented rate. Since 1900, the percent of Americans ages 65 and older has tripled and will continue to rise through 2025. In addition, individuals with developmental disabilities are living longer than ever and it is up to service providers, like us, to offer opportunities that will enhance their lives through interactions with people of all walks of life.
