About Us

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the inclusion of children with disabilities in Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. We unite pastors, principals, families, and donors to offer a faith-based education for all Catholic students, starting with those of greatest disability-related need.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide children with disabilities the opportunity for an inclusive Catholic education. We envision an archdiocese that educates students with special needs and their Catholic peers and siblings alongside one another. We promote excellence in special education that reflects the quality and character of our incredible Catholic schools. We respond to the call of the Gospel in carrying out this mission.

Our Approach

We provide funding and consultative support to assist parishes and schools in providing inclusive education. Our annual grants focus on one-to-one classroom support and other critical supplementary aids and services. Our consulting services are free and available to all schools within the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

Our History

FIRE Foundation of Milwaukee was founded in 2022 in response to the need for inclusive Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. We are an affiliate of the FIRE Foundation, which has served the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph for over 25 years, granting Catholic partner schools more than $5 million in support of inclusion.
