We are proud to call Milwaukee home and are committed to our diverse and vibrant neighborhoods. Improving the quality of life for Milwaukee residents of all ages creates a positive and lasting impact on our city. Together, with our valued partners, we are enhancing our communities with programs dedicated to safe neighborhoods, healthy and thriving youth, strong families and quality education.

We work closely with the residents and leaders of three distinct Milwaukee neighborhoods to help them identify opportunities to improve their communities. The neighborhoods and their lead anchor organizations are:

  • Milwaukee Christian Center in Muskego Way
  • The Dominican Center in the Amani neighborhood
  • The Metcalfe Park Community Bridges in Metcalfe Park
