Dear parents and caregivers,


This is a difficult time for everyone to navigate.  I am sure you have all heard that Governor Evers has ordered that all schools in the state of Wisconsin close by Wednesday, March 18th with the plan to resume classes on Tuesday, April 14th.  We are coordinating with your School District regarding support plans during this shut down.  


Coulee Connections is committed to ensuring that the students and families we are serving will have the opportunity to support the education and growth of those we serve.  Our goal is to provide an opportunity for minimal academic interruption. We will provide all of our students with a curriculum to be completed, along with the opportunity for face to face interactions scheduled to provide guidance and assist with expectations.  We do not want any family to feel unsupported during this time. Our team will be contacting you in the next few days to discuss what this plan will look like.


If there are questions or concerns about the academic expectations or additional needs, our team will be available for communication during the next three weeks. This is a fluid situation and communication will be extremely important.  We encourage any and all collaboration conversations and will do our best to work with you during this difficult time.

Welcome to Coulee Connections!

The vibrant, ever-expanding alternative environment


Welcome to Coulee Connections – your partners in restoring and building resiliency with children, youth their families and community.


It’s evident that finding happiness and fulfilment in modern society has become more challenging and stressful.   The demands of daily living are on the rise.  Our ability to bounce back from stress, challenge, tragedy, trauma and adversity is of the utmost importance in working through the muck toward better versions of ourselves.  During these times it’s not uncommon for our supportive connections to be damaged or weakened, leaving us with feelings of increasing isolation and helplessness.  The road to restoring and building resiliency is not made of independence or rugged self-reliance.  It is born from a willingness for those in need, to find partnership with an inspired, responsive, compassionate, caregiver.  


Coulee Connections provides “resiliency partnerships” providing Alternative Education Services and Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) to children, youth and young adults experiencing significant emotional, behavioral and social difficulties in their family, public school or community programs.  Our Circle of Security informed practice is highly integrated, trauma informed, experientially based skill building that has been successful in supporting a wide range of needs.


Daily, our team at Coulee Connections pledges to live inspired lives, to be responsive, compassionate caregivers.  Our team understands the journey to resilience cannot be your journey… we have to be always willing and always ready for it to be our journey.  Whether the need is for a little or a lot of resiliency, I invite you to check us out.  Visit the rest of our web site, come on in and chat with us, take a tour of programming, ask the tough partnership questions to see if we might be a fit for your resiliency journey.  


Wishing you the best,


- Rob Van Nuland , Founder/CEO


Together, we can continue to heal & inspire our children.
