Where Should the Homeless Go?
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (Aug. 1, 2009)

I am writing to ask you to fully support homeless shelters in Milwaukee County for the 2018 budget.
Please don’t take a step backward in our efforts to end homelessness - take care of the most vulnerable in Milwaukee!

Proposed funding cuts would cause a severe loss to our shelter system. According to Wendy Weckler, chair of the Shelter and Transitional Living Task Force, we will see fewer beds available, staff layoffs, shorter hours and more people living on the street.

Since 2015 the County has been a critical partner in reducing the number of homeless people in the county. You have helped us decrease the number of homeless persons in Milwaukee County from 1,200 to 900. Thank you!

Continued success towards ending chronic homelessness means continued support of a full continuum of services. Without your support, where would the 5,500 individual adults, youth and children currently served by shelters go each night?

On Monday, December 11th, please vote to fully support homeless shelters in the 2018 budget.
