Some Places Your Giving Will Go...

Local Partners

CARENET

"Fund a fifth day of our ultrasound program. We currently have our sonographers at the center four days a week, but they are starting to work more hours as the needs arise. "

 

CITY ON A HILL

"One of our core goals for 2021 is to reach more youth in Milwaukee’s troubled central city with our methodical, highly relational, faith-based Youth Program and a church home. We will do so by expanding the scope and spiritual impact of our youth program and adding an alumni component for youth who age out but want to continue to mentor and apply the life lessons gained through City on a Hill. To make this a reality, we need a second van that will allow us to serve an additional 50 youth each week with transportation to and from City on a Hill."

 

MILWAUKEE HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

"We would like to install high premium security doors for 11 new homeowners." Check out Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity's Impact Report to learn more about where your giving will go.

 

HOPE STREET

"Purchase new appliances (fridge, stove, microwave) for half the units at Hope Street. We are constantly trying to update these due to the transient nature of our community has been difficult. Many units desperately need new appliances to provide dignity and hope."

 

SAFE FAMILIES

"Fully fund the cost for children of 20 at risk families to stay with a Safe Family for up to 4 weeks. This covers any critical needs of the children, necessary counseling and support."

STADIA

Survival program for mothers and babies in Guatemala. Help babies and mothers in poverty by employing four strategies:

  1. Home-based Care Mothers are visited monthly in their homes by a Survival specialist, who offers education in prenatal care and early child-rearing as well as one-on-one biblical mentoring with parents.
  2. Group-based Learning Activities. Parents can receive basic education and income-generation training to combat long-term poverty and combat isolation through a supportive community of mothers.
  3. Advocacy for Moms. Assistance that provides and secures funding for medical treatments, ensures mothers are treated fairly by local services, and arranges for birth attendants to assist mothers during childbirth.
  4. Survival Centers. Staff help coordinate outreach and care and offer a safe place for new mothers to learn and grow, all the while monitoring and supporting health child development.
