Brad schlaikowski

Brad had a vision one night in August 2015, to host an event to raise money for homeless LGBTQ+ youth in Milwaukee. The event grew larger than anyone imagined and thus, Courage MKE was born. Brad’s credentials are in Early Childhood Development, which have led him and his husband down the path of fostering kids ages 2-17.


Volunteering has been a passion of Brad’s for as long as he can remember. He has served as a leader on many boards at his children’s schools and in the foster care community. His passion to ensure every LGBTQ child in and around Greater Milwaukee is given the opportunity to be successful is what drives him every day.


Brad has been married to his husband Nick for two years; they live in Wauwatosa with their children Xavier, Noah, Landon and Ivy along with their two dogs, cat and ferret.
