WaterStone Bank Continues Support of the Milwaukee Student Assistance Program
October 3, 2016 (Germantown, WI)—WLCFS-Christian Family Solutions is thrilled to announce that WaterStone Bank has awarded our Student Assistance Program a grant for $1,000. WaterStone Bank has generously sponsored this program since 2011.The purpose of the grant is to provide counseling services on-site at schools in Milwaukee that participate in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP). Recognizing the critical need for counseling in the schools, WaterStone Bank granted our request so students in the elementary school and high school levels can be supported and ultimately reach their educational goals.
Dan Nommensen, LPC, Member Assistance Program Coordinator at WLCFS, says, “We are thrilled to again receive a grant from WaterStone Bank. Their support is critical to us being able to provide professional counseling services to students in Milwaukee’s urban schools. Without that support, the students would not get the help they need to be successful and reach their academic and personal goals.”
The funds from this gift will be combined with other donations and grants and used to support counseling services currently being offered on-site at MPCP schools. Since 2008, this program has provided critical services to over 1,900 students.
