WOMEN'S SUPPORT CENTER CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
The work of the Women's Support Center is crucially important for our city. We serve women in some of the most difficult situations in Milwaukee. Some are literally choosing between life and death. We have been blessed with the opportunity to buy the building we are currently renting. We need to raise $75,000 to bring this blessing to life. We hope to raise $25,000.00 through our Crowd Rise Campaign and $50,000.00 at our annual banquet.
Here are a few reasons why this is an AMAZING opportunity:
- Location: The building is 394 feet from Planned Parenthood. At this location we will be able to serve those who are Planned Parenthood Targets
- Security: We will not be threatened by the end of a lease or by landlords who do not agree with our mission. In addition, the location is a safe place which is regularly policed by Marquette University Security.
- We will be able to minister to women in a safe, warm and beautiful place. The building, located at 2051 S. Wisconsin Avenue, is a beautiful old house which was renovated in 2005.
- The location is well traveled and our presence there is well known. We have been at this location since 2008.
- On the Blue line bus route: Most of our clients ride the bus, this make this location very easy for them to access.
- Near Marquette Campus
- Room to expand: Last year the number of women we served increased by 20%. We need more room! Buying this building gives us all of the room we need to expand
These are just a few reasons for why this location is ideal for the Women's Support Center. Please help us reach our goal and purchase this building so we can continue to serve the women of Milwaukee. Thank you!
