Today we want to introduce you to the theme of the Summer:

“Honoring our past… Acknowledging our present… Anticipating our future”

The SSNC was created in 1958 to serve the residents of Westlawn Gardens, Wisconsin’s largest public housing complex. Since then we have expanded into serving all of Northwest Milwaukee, but Westlawn itself has also grown. In 2010, the most ambitious project in state history began: an $85 million makeover of Westlawn, done in collaboration with the city, state, Milwaukee Bucks, Johnson Controls, and more. While Westlawn is run by the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee (HACM), the SSNC has been described as the “heart of Westlawn,” offering the services and programming needed for local families to thrive

With the makeover completing at the end of this year, we at the SSNC are trying to finish a long-term project of our own… Finishing our daycare’s playground and finally obtaining a 5-out-of-5 YoungStar rating (which would make us one of the few in Northwest Milwaukee). Besides having a safer, higher-quality space for our youngest to learn and play, the rating provides long-term financial stability. With higher federal reimbursement dollars, we’d have more resources to devote toward the children of our community, putting them on a path toward success from their earliest days.

We've so appreciated your support in the past and present. Will you join us in anticipating a better future?

All donations to the SSNC provide quality caring for those who need it in Northwest Milwaukee. 

Whether it’s caring for infants in our childhood development center, helping adults finish their education or re-enter the workforce, offering academic enrichment and counseling to teens, or fighting food insecurity with our community gardens and food pantry, all of these things require funding. We have so many incredible people who follow what we do, but without the proper resources, we are unable to deliver our mission.

Lasting community change is certainly our passion, but it’s also expensive to produce. Will you consider making a donation to the SSNC today?

We want to sincerely thank you for taking the time to hear our plea. We are passionate about what we do and try not to focus on the financial aspects of it. However, it is a reality that we must face: require support like yours to continue our mission. Any level of support or donation helps, and we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to serve our community and to anticipate a brighter future for all of Northwest Milwaukee.
