Supporting Programs with your Contribution

Housing First in Response to COVID-19 Crisis

These emerging funds would be used to help Milwaukee's most vulnerable population during the coronavirus pandemic. Funds would be utilized to purchase food, cleaning supplies, bus vouchers, clothing and more. 

Rental Application Fees/Security Deposits

The first step toward permanent housing is the completion of a rental application and the submission of a security deposit. Be the hero who helps individuals begin the journey toward stabilization. 

Move-In Kits

Household essentials are needed for participants in the Housing First program. Items such as linens, furniture and cookware are supplied to help participants lead independent lifestyles.

Downtown Homeless Outreach Coordinator

With a consistent presence downtown and access to an outreach vehicle, this full-time staff person works on the front lines helping individuals get off the streets, and is a point person for other homeless-related issues.
