Connect and collaborate with human services organizations across Wisconsin

WAFCA membership provides human service organizations with a network of colleagues who are eager to connect and collaborate. Our Communities of Practice (COP) spaces convene regularly to identify best practices, network, and work together to develop solutions to financial and bureaucratic barriers to serving our communities. 

Our members meet quarterly via Zoom and communicate year-round via email. In addition, members have complete access to our resources and can receive support for technical questions, compliance concerns, or policy details at any time. Join our more than 50 members serving Wisconsin communities. 

Networking with like-minded colleagues enhances our work, improves services to our clients, and re-energizes our team members. Explore the COPs below to find the best fit:

Impact Data Community of Practice

Agencies providing residential services gather to formulate questions they would like answered through their collection of data, to review the data in light of the questions, and to discuss effective ways to utilize the information, including advocacy with state agency leaders and legislators. 

  • The 2023 meeting dates for the Impact Data COP will be posted soon; all meetings are via Zoom unless otherwise noted.

  • To join the Impact Data COP, agencies must: 

1) submit data by due dates established by the group
2) identify a data designee
3) commit to a minimum of one year of participation for one or more of your agency’s programs. 
Agency-specific data will be kept confidential. Aggregate data will be shared only with participating human services organizations.
