Make a Difference in Someone's Life

Thank you for making our 48 Hours of Giving 2020 Campaign a huge success!

During this time of crisis, we appreciate your generosity.

Thanks to your contributions, we will be able to continue to provide our life-transforming care to the most vulnerable members of our community. 

We appreciate your care and concern and wish you and your families the very best of health.

Thank you!

First and foremost, we hope this finds you and your family

in good health!


We, like so many organizations, are taking the COVID-19 threat seriously to reduce its spread and ensure the safety and health of those we serve, our employees, volunteers and the general public.


As you know, this is the time of year that we reach out

to our friends and donors

to ask for your support during our 48 Hours of Giving Campaign.


As we continue to serve the most vulnerable in our community,

we have taken measures so people who have nowhere else to go

can still access the services they so desperately need,

including our 24/7 sites providing vital assistance and shelter

to those affected by domestic violence, homelessness,

and mental health challenges.

our COVID-19 response.


We recognize the uncertainty that we all face during

this unprecedented time,

but together we can and will get through this.


If you are able, we would certainly appreciate your support

at this time to assist our neighbors in need.

Your investment will support 70,000 individuals who reach out to Community Advocates each year for help with securing and maintaining their housing, keeping their heat and lights on, mental health and disability advocacy, substance use disorder treatment, and domestic violence services. Sadly, Milwaukee and Waukesha have also recently experienced a tragic string of domestic violence incidents that have turned deadly. Our Milwaukee Women’s Center division is committed to providing safety and support to everyone affected by this devastating issue. And, our Public Policy Institute (PPI) is on the front lines on behalf of low-income, at-risk individuals and families to address the critical issues that bring people to us every day. PPI is dedicated to reducing poverty through economic and employment opportunities, increasing access to health care and quality housing, and preventing violence, substance abuse, and tobacco use among Milwaukee’s youth, families, and adults.

Thank you so very much for your consideration, friendship, and support!

We appreciate you!
