WORKSITE INFORMATION

In a city known for its cheese, frozen custard, Marquette University, Miller Brewing Company, Harley Davidson and the Milwaukee Brewers there is much work to be done. Milwaukee itself has high rates of poverty and racial disparity. Waukesha County, where our home base is located for the week, is more affluent, but many families there also struggle with poverty. Some of our groups will be working in inner-city Milwaukee helping people upgrade and renovate their homes. Many other sites will be with local social agencies both in the city and in Waukesha County, serving people who are elderly, homeless and poor.

Additionally, a few groups will be working at Trinity Academy, a Catholic school in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, which depends on our volunteers to prepare their buildings and grounds for the coming school year.
