About Us

Accidental injury is the number one killer of children under the age of 14.


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). 

Our mission is to create a culture of childhood safety in Northeast Wisconsin by providing education and resources to children and adults.

For 29 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.

"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
