The city of Milwaukee is beautiful in its rich culture and diversity. Yet, many years after the battle against segregation, Milwaukee still shows signs of separation and racial oppression. This city has the highest teen pregnancy rates in the country and the highest unemployment rates among African American males. Overall, it is the fourth poorest city in the country.
In the midst of these statistics, there is an undeniable sense of potential as well as the need for the love and hope of Christ. That is where the local church in Milwaukee, as well as many nonprofit organizations and ministries have stepped in. Teams participate in small repair projects, service opportunities and outreach activities, all with the goal of sharing the love of Christ and helping to unify a community experiencing division.
