**Our center is open to the many hundreds at or affected by the Waukesha Christmas Parade. All of our services are provided at no cost to the recipient. In January 2023, we received an invoice for mental health treatment of 8 police/fire personnel that used about half of our monthly budget. This was just 8 people when there are hundreds eligible for our services.
