Family Support Center

Community Advocates Milwaukee Wisconsin

Homelessness remains a critical issue in our community. So often, families living in poverty may be only one paycheck away from being evicted from their apartments or homes.

Many low-income families also face increased barriers (limited support systems, mental health / addiction issues, domestic violence, limited education, a lack of job and/or basic living skills) to becoming self-sufficient.

For these reasons and more, it is critical that we provide a safety net like shelter and supportive services, so that we don't see additional men, women, and children living on the streets wondering where they are going to sleep and/or get their next meal.

The purpose of the Family Support Center is to provide support and resources for low-income families who are experiencing a housing crisis.

Services include emergency shelter, meals, personal hygiene items, clothing, and comprehensive Case Management (advocacy, information, and referrals) to help families transition from emergency shelter to housing back in the community.

Please call (414) 671-6140 to contact the Family Support Center.
