Serving people with developmental disabilities since 1904

Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Inspired by the Franciscan Values of compassion, dignity and respect, we support persons with developmental and other challenges to achieve their highest quality of life, personal growth and spiritual awareness.

Our Vision

St. Coletta of Wisconsin will be the premier provider of support services for adults with developmental disabilities and other challenges throughout their lifespan. Through dynamic partnerships, exceptional customer service, a demonstrated commitment to quality and spirituality, we will work with persons receiving services to achieve their best life possible.

Established by the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi-Milwaukee over a century ago, St. Coletta of Wisconsin is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality residential, day/vocational programs and services for persons with development disabilities and other challenges. We strive to provide consumer-driven programs and services that consistently meet and exceed the expectations of our stakeholder. As one of the oldest organizations in the industry, 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. These relationships build a community spirit that is a unique part of our organization.

Though ecumenical in our approach, our heritage as a Catholic/Franciscan organization and our ongoing sponsorship by the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi guides all decision making and has a strong influence on programs, services and values.
