I have worked on two web sites through the Non-ProfIT program at UWM. The program provides nonprofit organizations in the Milwaukee area with Information Technology support they would otherwise be unable to get. In return we gain real world experience working on project teams to provide technology solutions while developing a passion for service.
Community First is a community based non-profit organization primarily responsible for administering the City of Milwaukee Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP), a housing rehabilitation loan program for low income homeowners that uses Federal Community Development Block Grand and HOME funds.
Community First staff serves as the liaison between the families, contractors and City of Milwaukee staff. Further, Community First serves as a conduit to other area services and organizations that applicants and those in need may find benefit.
The mission of Walker’s Point Youth & Family Center is to meet the needs of runaway, homeless, and other troubled youth and their families from Milwaukee’s diverse communities by providing services to empower youth, help them resolve personal and family problems, strengthen family relationships, and support safe and stable homes.
We are a private, non-profit corporation which has been providing help to Milwaukee area youth and families since 1976. We offer shelter, counseling, educational and other services to help young people resolve their problems and strengthen family relationships.
