Living Here

People helping people.
Side by Side, Inc., a very caring non-profit organization, was founded in 2006 and serves residents in need in the Lake Geneva School District. The group of volunteers who make up this great resource are from local churches, businesses, service groups, and community volunteers. One hundred percent of the donations received are distributed to those in crisis. Its mission is “Volunteers responding to neighbors in need of compassion, hope, community resources, and financial assistance.” There are families in the Lake Geneva area struggling to make ends meet and Side by Side is sometimes a solution, when no other exists, to help. Side by Side is there to help people and family members to stand on their own, with short-term emergency financial assistance to help them overcome difficulties.

It is also a great organization for referrals and suggestions for more resources to help meet as many needs as possible. Side by Side does not operate on compassion alone, it is always in need of the nuts and bolts of what makes a successful charitable organization work: caring volunteers and monetary donations. The organization does receive grants, but the organization is mostly funded by donations. If you might be able to donate or volunteer then please go to, or email Side by Side can also be found on Facebook. The simplest way to get in contact and find out a great first step in the application process for being helped is to call 262-581-5927.

This outfit really does work for so many families, and it’s also beloved by the volunteers who make it happen and the donors who finance the whole thing.  Lake Geneva is blessed by this relatively quiet, and mostly unknown, crew of great people.  It is simply a wonderful organization. Thank you Side by Side!
