About Us

Our staff work tirelessly is to prevent childhood injuries and deaths.


Our organization is a dedicated to helping families and communities keep kids safe from injuries.  For 30 years, the Center for Childhood Safety has been a "vaccine" against accidental childhood injury.  CCS's mission is to be the leading source of safety education and programming in Northeast Wisconsin, dedicated to preventing and eliminating childhood injury.  Each year more than 6.5 million young people are injured severely enough to land in a hospital emergency room, many with life-altering consequences. Yet, an astounding 90% of these could have been avoided through education and prevention measures like those offered through the Center for Childhood Safety (CCS). 

"If a disease were killing our children at the rate of unintentional injury, the public would be outraged and demand this killer be stopped."
- Former Surgeon General, C. Everett Koop
