The Jack and Barbara Recht Family Supports Community Advocates’ Homeless Outreach and Supportive Housing Programs
Milwaukee— Community Advocates is honored to accept a $100,000 donation from The Jack and Barbara Recht Family Fund. This contribution will enable our Homeless Outreach and Supportive Housing Programs to continue to assist individuals who are living on the streets or are transitioning from the streets into permanent housing.
“It’s hard to express how important the Recht family’s gift will be to the hundreds of individuals we serve who are struggling to get by on the city’s streets, in our parks, and in other places not fit for human habitation,” said Community Advocates CEO Andi Elliott. “With the Recht family’s donation, we will be able to continue to provide compassionate, professional care and services to men and women who don’t have a safe place to sleep at night, a clean kitchen in which to cook their meals, or the health care and other supports that will enable them to live independently and with dignity. We are very grateful to Barbara Recht and her family for supporting our efforts to assist these vulnerable members of our community.”
“A safe, stable home is central to every person’s health and well-being,” Elliott said. “With this gift from Barbara Recht and her family, more individuals will be able to come home each night with peace of mind.”
