Who we are:

Anu Family Services has a 22-year history of providing innovative solutions to help create permanence, safety and wellbeing for children and their families. We have been nationally accredited by the “gold standard” in child welfare accreditation —The Council on Accreditation (COA)—since our inception in 1992.

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 first locations developed in Western Wisconsin, and have expanded to a statewide presence that ranges across the entire state from Milwaukee to Hudson and Superior to La Crosse.

Our current headquarters include: The Northern Region Headquarters in Eau Claire, Wisconsin; The Southern Region Headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin; The Minnesota Headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota and the Administrative Headquarters in Hudson, Wisconsin.

Our service specialization started with treatment foster care and has expanded to service offerings in medically fragile foster care, respite foster care, family search and engagement, parent coaching and parent support services, Parent Coaching Certification, training and consultation.
