Our Mission & Vision
In support of Milwaukee’s central city education.
Next Door’s mission is to support the intellectual, physical, spiritual and emotional development of children so they become self-sufficient, contributing members of the community.
Next Door’s vision is to position neighborhood children and families for long-term success.
Safe. Thoughtful. Accountable. Respectful. By fostering these values in every member of the Next Door family—students, parents, teachers and staff—we set a foundation for success that goes much deeper than academics. When children learn the power of respect, the value of owning their own behaviors, and the importance of thinking through challenges—all within a safe and loving environment—that’s how every child becomes a STAR.
