We provide Greater Milwaukee’s only daytime refuge
and resource center for homeless adults—
a place to learn to fish.
Located at 1335 W. Vliet Street in Milwaukee's central city, the Repairers of the Breach Center is open from 7AM to 4PM, Monday—Saturday.
Our daytime sanctuary is an empowering place where homeless and at-risk men and women create community and a sense of "ownership" in their center. They work together to find solutions to homelessness using our "constellation" of free resources—all in a nurturing and non-judgmental context emphasizing "homeless helping homeless."
Repairers of the Breach gladly relies on donations all-year-round to feed, comfort and clothe our members. Please help us fill our seasonal needs, which become increasingly crucial with the colder weather.
Our clinic supplies are also running low, so we are turning to our network of friends to help us restock our cabinets. Please consider donating to our medical clinic.
Share the Warmth, Save a Life
As temperatures drop, the needs of Milwaukee's homeless become a matter of life and death. Overnight shelters fill. Survival is at stake. When wind chill temperatures reach 10 degrees, we open our doors at 10PM, providing overnight comfort in the form of safety, warmth, rest, nourishment and fellowship for those otherwise left out in the cold.
Falling temperatures increase more than our hours of operation. Costs for heat, electricity, food, maintenance, security and supervision (by staff persons hired from our member population) rise dramatically.
With severe temperatures at hand, we ask for your immediate support. Your contribution to our Share the Warmth Emergency Fund will help defray the cost of warming room services for our unsheltered homeless members. Please help today. Be sure to designate "Share the Warmth."
