St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care is among the finalists in the Nonprofit Excellence Awards for 2016. The center is being recognized in the category of Nonprofit Collaboration of the Year for the construction and opening of its new Bucyrus Campus at 2450 W. North Avenue.

“From the beginning, the goal of St. Ann Center’s Bucyrus Campus has been to build the community from within,” said Sr. Edna Lonergan, OSF, president of St. Ann Center, talking about its collaboration with neighborhood residents, churches, government officials and other local nonprofits. The nationally acclaimed organization provides health and educational day services for children, the frail elderly and adults with disabilities at one shared site. The Bucyrus Campus opened in September of 2015 to serve residents of the 53206 and 53205 ZIP codes.

The Nonprofit Excellence Awards, a program of BizTimes Milwaukee, honors reader-nominated citizens and nonprofit organizations for their work and ongoing commitment to making Milwaukee a better place to live, work and play. Finalists will be recognized and award winners will be announced at a special breakfast on Thursday, Nov. 3, from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino.

Over 30 collaborators were cited in St. Ann Center’s Bucyrus Campus nomination. Among them are: Next Door Foundation, which oversees the center’s Head Start and Early Head Start programs; Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board, Inc., which helped in the recruitment of neighborhood residents for jobs at the new center; the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, which supports the center’s newly opened dental clinic for people with disabilities; Parklawn Assembly of God, which is spearheading fundraising for a 350-seat community band shell on the campus grounds; Ald. Russell W. Stamper II and BID 32, collaborators on a north side business incubator; and Walnut Way Conservation Corps which handles landscaping for the new campus.
