Doing the most important work in Milwaukee!

Every child deserves a strong start to life no matter the circumstances they are born into. At Next Door, our team works hard to ensure under-resourced children in Milwaukee get a strong start to life through high quality, personalized early childhood education.

Next Door serves nearly 1,400 children a year from birth to five years old through two center-based sites, a home visitation program and 11 partnership sites in Milwaukee County.

We focus on getting children ready for school with academic and social-emotional learning, behavioral, disability and mental health support services and medical and dental care – all at no cost to our families.

In addition, Next Door provides family advocates to support parents with community resources in areas like housing, employment and food. Next Door also works with expectant mothers in a home-based prenatal services program.
