The Family Enrichment Center began in 1995 when several agencies decided to share space in Cedarburg. In 1999, the four participating agencies moved to the current home of the center at 885 Badger Cir. in Grafton.

The center provides a state-of-the-art building and shared services for a host of nonprofit organizations.
