The MERIT Centres

Two great La Crosse locations for adults to spend the day!

An uplifting and safe oasis where people gather to engage with others at the Centre or from the broader community.  Activities are designed to promote brain health, social connectedness, and physical health in addition to supporting each person’s independence.

“MERIT Centre Today” Fund Helps New Adult Day Center Participants in the La Crosse Area

Thanks to a grant from the La Crosse Community Foundation’s Bramschreiber Family Fund, in memory of Karl Bramschreiber, the gift can help provide short term funding for persons whose financial resources limit their ability to attend the MERIT Centre Adult Day Program.  These monies can be used to “try it out” or to start a regular schedule while seeking resources for on-going financial support.  We hope this will allow us to support participants and their families expediently.

The MERIT Centres are certified by the State of Wisconsin.
