On Wednesday, I joined Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch at Community Advocates in Milwaukee to help announce $500,000 in grants to 10 homeless shelters. The money will help provide case management services related to income stabilization and employment training.
Grants are going to the following groups that help fight homelessness in Wisconsin:
Community Advocates (Milwaukee)
Salvation Army of Dane County
Salvation Army of Milwaukee
Freedom House Ministries (Green Bay)
Homeless Connections (Appleton)
Renewal Unlimited (Portage)
Salvation Army – Grace Place (New Richmond)
Lakeshore IHN, Hope House Manitowoc
Family Promise Washington County
In 2015, more than 27,500 people received services or shelter in our state. These grants will help make sure people don't fall through the cracks and get the help that they need.
