Empower· Heal· Connect Who We Are

Anu Family Services has been providing innovative services since 1992. Anu Family Services is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that serves clients in Wisconsin and Minnesota. We are nationally accredited by the “gold standard” in child welfare accreditation —The Council on Accreditation (COA)—since our inception.

Our service specialization started with treatment foster care and has expanded to service offerings that are designed to support families so that children can remain in the home, get home more quickly or be successful when they return home. Parent Coaching, Youth Coaching, Community-Based Flexible Support, and Individualized Trauma Services (ITS) are a few of the innovative approaches designed by Anu Family Services.  Anu Family Services also provides Parenting Coach Certification, training, and consultation.

 Anu was an early founder and innovator of the national/international treatment foster care model. Our former parent company was founded in 1972 by a small group of foster parents who believed professional, highly trained, and involved foster parents could provide effective treatment to children with challenging behaviors in family-based settings.

To this day, Anu Family Services is committed to these values and the belief that children reach their best potential in family-based settings rather than institutions. Our service specialization started with treatment foster care and has expanded to service offerings that are designed to support families so that children can remain in the home, get home more quickly or be successful when they return home.  Parent Coaching, Youth Coaching, Community-Based Flexible Support, and Individualized Trauma Services (ITS) are a few of the innovative approaches designed by Anu Family Services.  Anu Family Services also provides Parenting Coach Certification, training, and consultation.

Anu provides services in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Most of our staff work from remote home offices which allows us to have staff conveniently located throughout WI and MN close to the families we serve. Anu has administrative offices located in Eau Claire, Hudson, and Madison, Wisconsin and Woodbury, MN.
