About Willow Tree

Willow Tree Cornerstone Child Advocacy Center is an innovative program of Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin. Our mission is to Protect, Heal, and Care for children who have been abused, neglected, or otherwise maltreated.

Since opening in January 2011, Willow Tree has helped more than 4,500 children be heard, believed and helped to heal. A 10-year-old girl recent wrote a note to Willow Tree staff saying she liked how everyone made her feel "nice and comfy" before everything started, and she felt "so much better" after she was done talking to someone about what happened to her.

Willow Tree has changed the way that child abuse is investigated in our community. This change could not have been possible without the help of kind-hearted supporters like you!
