News release from Alderwoman Chantia Lewis

Common Council President Ashanti Hamilton, Alderwoman Chantia Lewis and several Milwaukee pastors will host a press conference Wednesday, August 10 at 2:00 p.m. to announce the “All Things in Common” partnership that will provide assistance to residents at up to 25 local churches scattered throughout the city.

These “community resource hubs” will not only provide direct services like group-based mentoring, but referrals to city services and in-kind resources provided by philanthropic partners. Residents will be able to get connected with driver’s license recovery, child support mediation and other critical services. The partnership is a critical facet of the multi-pronged public safety plan announced by the Common Council on May 31.

Faith-based partners will kick off the initiative with a citywide block party hosted at all of the resource hub sites on August 27, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Attendees can win free gas, groceries and bus passes. A full list of the sites and additional details are available at milwaukee.gov/ATIC.

“We are so grateful for and impressed by the number of institutions that have come forward and volunteered to serve as resource hubs,” Alderwoman Lewis said. “This initiative is already proving its value as a positive force for change in Milwaukee.”

When:       2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 10
