Hello, Repairers!

Do you, or does someone you know, like to travel? Have you collected a pile of travel-sized shampoos and soaps and are unsure what to do with them?

Donate them to Repairers of the Breach! As shower usage has increased, our supplies of travel-sized shampoos and soaps have decreased and we need your help to replenish our stock.

We have conditioner, but we're extremely low on shampoos and soaps.

Thank you!!!!

Yup.

Did you know that there's another, hidden type of homelessness? It's called "couch surfing" and applies to those who stay at people's homes, but who have no fixed address of their own.

At Repairers of the Breach, we serve all adults with a need, whether or not they have shelter.

We are more then half way there!!! Our children have been taught from an early age the importance of acts of goodness and kindness. This is especially true on one's birthday. Last week our youngest two turned 5 & accompanied their older siblings giving out food packages & challas. There is nothing more meaningful to the elderly to be remembered by children.
Greetings do you have storage space for the homeless to store their belongings?
οΏΌπŸŽ„πŸŽ„ Merry Christmas πŸŽ„πŸŽ„ And 🌹GOD BLESS πŸŽ€
If you tell somebody to tell somebody I won't tell anybody who told you. The breakfast is free & so are the uplifting words. Mario the Poet told you but just between us.
I heard some cities are putting in Vending machines that the homeless can get free items from twice a week with the slip of a credit-like card to help their needs. Has anybody done that in Milwaukee yet?
Help. There was a man outside of Beans & Barley. Obviously very cold very thin jacket. Hard to understand but he was trying to get a coat. We told him we'd go get him one and bring it back. He wanted to go with us (because the lady from Beans and Barley was kicking him out of their lot I believe). I think he wanted warmth but really wanted a coat! He was black, thin, jeans fallen below his rear, missing teeth on the bottom. Hard for him to communicate. I don't know where goes at night. Felt so bad and if we went and got him a coat he most likely would be gone. Do you help find people like this? No gloves, navy very thin jacket. Wsa there today at around 9:30 10a.m.

We need to create some org. that buy land. { a group of us get together to buy land and form an org to make the purchase} We then create eco villages, that live by the principles of NON VIOLENT COMMUNICATION by Marshall Rosenberg. We can create a cooperative if we choose, but we should definitely raise some food. Our homes can be tiny house eco of grid homes. We need to start this right away.
Lately, we at Casa Maria had a lot of donated. We have no room for it so it is in the alley behind Casa. If you have room anywhere for it, we could bring it to you. Please let us know. Call me at 414-342-0158.
THANK GOD the $200M funding will not be cut
