You can help provide critical support to help reach and serve those who are all too often overlooked, tackling the complex issues surrounding poverty and homelessness.


The Cathedral Center provides a higher level of service than government funding can support. On average, helping each person who comes to The Cathedral Center costs $50 to $150 more than public funding resources can provide.

As such, private funding enables us to maintain the high quality of services and expertise required to help our clients achieve independence. Your support of our work addresses a critical need for a misunderstood and marginalized population.

Your monetary donation will help us provide shelter, basic needs necessities, and life-changing case management services to 1,000 women and families with children each year. If you have questions or would like to get involved, please contact Amy Rowell, Director of Resource Development, at 414-831-0394 ext. 2127 or
