About This Mission Grant

We are all children of God, despite our differences, challenges, and life experiences. The mission of Journeys Lutheran School is to serve God’s children age eight to 21 with special needs such as attention deficit disorder, learning disabilities, autism, anxiety, trauma, emotional behavior disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. For 60 years the school, located in the Milwaukee area, has prepared students to maximize their spiritual, academic, physical, emotional, and social potential to become successful Christian members of society. Students are able to earn a high school diploma and participate in meaningful cultural, historical, and spiritual events. The enrollment in the high school program is growing. This grant will help purchase two vans to transport high school students enrolled in the School-to-Work Internship Program and students taking elective classes at nearby Martin Luther High School.


Graduation is BIG day for Journeys Lutheran students, just like kids at other schools. They are excited that one journey is ending and another is just beginning.
