Walk into the Cathedral Center – in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, in the shadow of St. John’s Cathedral – and most people see a shelter for women and families. It’s really much more. It’s both a shelter and a gateway.

Since it was first conceived in 1996 and then incorporated as a nonprofit in 2002 as an emergency shelter for women, the non-sectarian center has housed and fed thousands of women and families – and set them on a path. Through intensive counseling and innovative approaches such as the Women’s Independence Program, lives are transformed.

Walk by the Cathedral Center in the heart of Milwaukee and you walk by something extraordinary – a little place where big things happen every day.
