(MILWAUKEE) – Milwaukee County Supervisor Russell W. Stamper II was pleased to participate in a press conference Thursday as Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity introduced its new Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI) for Washington Park.

The NRI allows the Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity to serve more families by responding to community needs with the help of additional resources, services and partnerships. This new initiative is committed to transforming economically challenged communities into more vibrant and healthy communities.

“I am excited to partner with Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity’s new neighborhood revitalization initiative to improve the Washington Park neighborhood.” Supervisor Stamper said. “This program will assist in transforming the community by providing long-term, sustainable revitalization that will increase homeowner pride, enhance neighborhood appearance, and improve the property values of the neighborhood.

“Milwaukee County and the residents of the 5th District are truly grateful for the commitment and significant contribution of Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity, the neighborhood organizations and the corporate sponsors-Joy Global, Harley-Davidson, Wells Fargo and the Brewers Community Foundation.”
