Entirely funded by private sources, programmatic constraints would render prevention services ineffective if funded by federal sources. As such, this program’s success is strictly limited to the amount of case management time that can be directly invested in client services.
The success of prevention services was clearly demonstrated in the household of three adults and ten children who were assisted by staff members to avoid the need for emergency shelter on two separate occasions over a 14 month period. Due to a recent fire in this family’s home, the grandmother, mother and several children are now living in one of our family shelter rooms while awaiting new housing.

Our program is described as a proven effective strategy for
reducing the demand for emergency shelters and homelessness in Milwaukee,
while also being one of the most under-funded of successful programs.
