Special thank you to Pastor Anthony Jacobs for visiting us on February 19th, offering delicious pizza, and sharing words of encouragement. You are truly Repairers of the Breach!
Thank you to Town Bank and its employees who raised and matched over $4,000 to keep us up and running, and thank you to Diane Milner and the Alzheimer's Association for providing us with hand sanitizers for this winter! You are all Repairers of the Breach!
Thank you to the Marquette students who brought bagged lunches to us on Saturday! You helped repair the breach between homelessness and hopefulness. Thank you for being Repairers!
This Thanksgiving was delicious, despite the snow. In addition, we opened our emergency warming room because the temperature dropped to 20 degrees or below. Thank you for all your support!
Thank you to all our UWM medical students who came to ROTB! Marquette University student interns also come work at our clinic, and we also have many partners who offer a wide range of services from AIDS testing to breast cancer screening. Thank you all for being Repairers of the Breach!
We were blessed to be visited by State Senator LaTonya Johnson of the Wisconsin 6th Senate District. She also presented us with a citation for our good work, recognizing our 30th anniversary as well.
Thank you, State Senator Johnson!
Spaghetti and Shopping
Special thank you to Pastor West and family for making their famous spaghetti dinner and for our volunteers who hosted another successful rummage sale!
Lunch Time Comedy Hour
Day to day living when you're housing unstable is no joke. Besides the challenges of finding housing, you must be constantly vigilant regarding your own safety and the safety of your stuff. Naturally, such stress can wear on you after a while.
Conversely, it's been said that laughter is the best medicine. A July 29, 2021 article from the Mayo Clinic cites many benefits to laughter, such as soothing tension, reducing stress response, and even improving your immune system.
Therefore, on August 13, a visit from Elvis Comedy was a wonderful treat for our Members, staff, and volunteers. Not only was the interactive show funny, but it gave everyone a chance to say something to our group, whether it be bars of encouragement to brave testimonials. We all physically and mentally benefitted from the event.
A delicious turkey dinner was prepared by Mario and passed out by Doris, making this "dinner and a show" one to remember! Thank you to all who made this possible!
