Since February 2017, the Volunteer Center of Ozaukee County has been managed by the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee.
"We are very excited about this partnership, because it will enable us to continue to provide the programs and services that our partner agencies and community members have come to rely on," says Brenda Peterson, former Executive Director of Volunteer Center Ozaukee.
"In fact, they can look forward to more educational and training opportunities being available to nonprofit agencies as NPC expands its programs into Ozaukee County," says Rob Meiksins, Chief Executive Officer of the Nonprofit Center.
Since taking on management of VCOC, NPC has hosted an open house for Agency Partners to give feedback about their needs and the direction of VCOC as well as scheduled the first workshop in its monthly series.
