Eisenhower Center

Eisenhower Center is a nonprofit organization that provides vocational training and a safe, warm and welcoming educational environment to individuals with severe disabilities in the metro-Milwaukee area. The Center’s 66,000 s.f. workshop facility, located at 4425 W. Woolworth Avenue, employs more than 100 individuals with developmental and physical disabilities who provide packaging, assembly, product rework, and mail order handwork for businesses across the United States with an impressive 100% quality control record.

Along with providing job training, Eisenhower Center offers educational classes in daily living, cooking, music, computer, and other life skills. These services are provided with the assistance of case management and social services professionals who work one-on-one with participants in the program. This individualized care helps to ensure that everyone is able to participate as fully as possible in the activities provided by the Center and in their own daily living skills. 

Hurtado Zimmerman SC staff volunteer at Eisenhower Center to assist with administrative duties, helping the employees of the Center serve participants.
