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 through 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."
On Monday, March 24, our cornerstone literacy program for Adult Basic Education (ABE) resumed at the Repairers of the Breach Center. One-on-one ABE training is now available to our members on a walk-in basis every Monday and Wednesday from 9AM-12PM. read more...
Repairers of the Breach gladly relies on donations all-year-round to feed, comfort and clothe our members. Please help us fill our spring/summer seasonal needs. We are focusing on healthy breakfast alternatives, which you can support by donating some of the suggested items.
Our clinic is in constant need of supplies, and we turn to our network of friends to help us keep our cabinets stocked. Right now we are in short supply of four key items and funds to purchase deeply-discounted medications. Please consider donating to our medical clinic.
Share the Warmth, Save a Life Campaign a Success!
We are very grateful to our generous and compassionate donors to our 2013-14 Share the Warmth Emergency Fund, and those who donated food, clinic items and cold-weather goods during this time of great need.
Thanks to all of you, we were able to offer emergency warming room service on 1,050 "person nights" over the course of 51 brutally cold nights.
Be sure to view our Warming Room Report for this season's emergency service statistics. We offer our thanks to each of our heroic donors for being a true repairer of the breach!
