Clarence Johnson

“WCS has been a stalwart in Southeast Wisconsin for decades - working side by side with officials in the Juvenile and Adult justice systems to address the needs of individuals and improve public safety. Our services and programs have improved public safety, and supported the efforts of many to live productively in the community.

We are committed to working with individuals who have become entangled in the criminal justice system and through a combination of innovative programming and personal accountability, the agency has helped these individuals lead more successful and productive lives.

I enjoy the chance to be a part of an innovative and solid organization that operates with high integrity, and respect for each person that we serve."



Sara Carpenter






"As a leader at WCS, I work to challenge, inspire, motivate and support those I work with to examine difficult issues, problem solve and create viable solutions, and to strive for excellence in the programs WCS provides to ensure the success of the clients we serve. It takes a community to elicit effective change.

The WCS mission of advocating for justice and community safety while providing innovative opportunities for individuals to overcome adversity, is at the foundation of everything I do professionally and personally.

The agency’s core values of respect, dignity, integrity and the pursuit of excellence guide all of my interactions with criminal justice system partners, leaders, and colleagues, as well as with the clients we serve."
