Welcome to Repairers of the Breach!
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 and on several major holidays.
Our daytime sanctuary is an empowering place where homeless 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."
Read our fall mailing appeal to learn about the positive changes strengthening our outreach!
Repairers of the Breach gladly relies on donations all-year-round to feed, comfort and clothe our homeless 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 keep our doors open around the clock, providing 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 and security rise dramatically. We face an additional $350 in costs each time we remain open on a 24-hour basis.
With winter weather fast approaching, 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."
