Today's Hero of the Week, PNC Bank, is a wonderful partner of ours who stepped up to the plate recently to help our Child Development Center!

While we've done some adapting to a virtual world during the pandemic, we still strive to do as much in house programming as possible.

In person activities requires lots of supplies, something we've unfortunately been running low on.

PNC didn't skip a beat in offering to help! They got us the supplies we needed and then some!

Pencils, crayons, paint, rulers, paper... there's nothing they didn't think of!

Properly stocked, we can continue to focus on the things we do best... offering high quality childcare for the residents of Northwest Milwaukee!

From literacy to communication skills to cognitive development, our wonderful staff works tirelessly for the future of our community. This is no easy task and it requires a lot of support to maintain such a level of consistency.

PNC has repeatedly stepped up to help when we needed it. In a year of chaos, they have been a consistent and stabilizing beacon of support.

In a year like 2020, it's always good to know those who have your back. PNC has stepped up to the plate time and time again, graciously supporting our community. For that, we are eternally grateful.

That's why PNC is our...

Our hero of the week today is someone who is very special to the SSNC community and has been for some time!

Meet Billy Haynes, although around here, everyone knows him as Mr. Haynes!

Mr. Haynes, a retired foundry worker born originally in Mississippi, has been volunteering at the SSNC for over 13 years!

It all started as a simple task of noticing someone needed help. He saw the supervisor of our food pantry was short staffed and decided to help her out for a bit.

That "little bit" turned out to be helping 3-4 days a week for over a decade!

Mr. Haynes helps out with whatever is needed that particular day. He says he simply wants to help. He thinks what we do is important and he wants to help however possible.

His selflessness and wholesome outlook is something we think should be celebrated!

Mr. Haynes is part of all the services our food pantry offers!

For example, last weeks Hero of the Week and our wonderful partners at the United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County donated boots, socks, backpacks, and winter hats! Between homeless folks or the diabetic seniors in our community, its hard to describe the value of donations like these are!

And of course, the wonderful Mr. Haynes will be helping us distribute them to any folks who need them!

Mr. Haynes has seen a lot of personnel change, along with the growth of our organization and community. One constant is that he's been here, helping out the whole time! He's an incredibly kind, caring man who we're honored to have part of our community.

That's why he is our...

Todays Hero of the Week is a true Super Hero in our community and this recognition is long overdue!

Today we want to thank our amazing partners, United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County for a handful of reasons!

While many of you probably at least know of United Way, we wanted to quickly touch on the incredible impact this chapter produces for our city. United Way believes in making the community stronger. By unifying organizations on critical issues, they strive to ensure everyone has a safe place to live, work, and play.

United Way fights for literacy, the basic needs of individuals in the community, the safety of people experiencing intimate partner violence, and the health and safety of the nonprofits and the people they serve. Since their start in 1909, they've invested over $1 billion to solve the community’s most serious problems!

This week was no different!

Partnered up with Amazon.com, United Way popped in this week and graciously donated 100 face shields to us here at the SSNC!

In a normal year, United Way is a critical part of our success here at the SSNC. In a year like 2020? They have repeatedly stepped up above and beyond to help us navigate the unforeseen difficulties of providing services during a pandemic.

Important yet simple donations like these face shields allow us to continue doing what we do best safely.

Our community relies on services like our food pantry to remain consistent and its partners like United Way that help us stay the course!

But providing face shields isn't the only thing United Way is doing this week! We wanted to share an absolutely outstanding campaign currently going on that helps fund some of these endeavors.

Want to support organizations like the SSNC and other non-profits United Way helps? Do you also like winning cars, motorcycles, beach resort vacations, or straight up cash?

Well here's your chance to do both!

https://donor.unitedeway.org/Default.aspx

A single gift to United Way can help hundreds of thousands of people. Since 2009, over 425,000 individuals and families struggling to meet their basic needs received food, transportation, legal, and housing assistance at the most vulnerable time of their lives.

We are so thankful to be partners with them!

That's why United Way is our...

This is Roni Spiller, Youth Coordinator for the Youth Services Department here at the SSNC

We want to introduce you to Roni, one of the newest heroes to join our squad. Only about a month in and she's already making an impact!

Roni, a proud mother and newlywed, has a history of helping youths. Formerly with Milwaukee Public Schools and the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee, her passion of helping teens has led her to landing here at the SSNC.

Coming into a new job is never easy, especially if you're in a leadership position. Well when her supervisor got sick for a while in her first month, Roni didn't miss a beat!

Roni held down the fort and established has already established her presence here at the center. We know she's a face people will come to know very soon!

Roni helps with all aspects of our Youth Services Department. She makes sure the youths are safe, ensures the programs are structured, encourages a fun atmosphere and caring culture, and helps run programs.

One of the programs she teaches is TOP (Teen Outreach Program) with Carmen Middle School. A health and wellness course, it focuses on educating our youth on their identity, health, emotions, and just general life tools

Our Youth Services Department is a great place for kids to grow both academically and interpersonally.

We offer cultural programming, technical teaching, general guidance, and provide a safe, fun place to hang out and meet folks!

Roni says she can already tell how much she loves the new gig. She loves the various personalities she has met and will get to help grow.

She was fairly familiar with the SSNC prior to working here but was blown away by options offered to teens now that she's part of the team.

We are so excited to have Roni join us and know she's going to do amazing things for the youths in our community! Her passion for helping teens is a virtue that is truly special. We admire her drive and think she's an up and coming superstar!

That's why she is our...

This is Tanya Endisch, Emergency Services Coordinator Assistant at the SSNC Food Pantry

A proud mother and always a pleasure to be around at the center, Tanya has a bit of a unique outlook on working at the food pantry.

Tanya was once on the other side of the equation. In 2006 when her grandmother unfortunately passed away, there was a period where she relied on the SSNC food pantry.
Fast forwarding a bit, she began volunteering around 2015 and was officially hired in 2017.

She's been here ever since and her compassion is a huge asset to helping run the food pantry!
Tanya assists with all aspects of the pantry, which is no easy feat! She helps organize the workers, makessure everything stays hygienic, coordinate shipments, and interacts with our community.

She says it feels really good to help the community, especially knowing what it's like being on that side of the table.

She knows what they're going through, how difficult situations can be, and knows exactly what a lifeline a place like this can be during those struggles.

We want to applaud Tanya for being such a compassionate piece of a program that helps folks in truly difficult times. This year has been exceptionally difficult for many and it's people like Tanya who are on the front lines of impacting communities.

That's why she is our...

QUICK UPDATE BEFORE THE HERO OF THE WEEK
Our Registration Sensation is live today starting at noon! And now... the HERO OF THE WEEK!

This is Brian Green, TMJP Caseworker for our Adult Employment program at the SSNC.

The SSNC is one of four administrating agencies of Transform Milwaukee Jobs Program (TMJP).

Participants enrolled in TMJP are placed in subsidized jobs with local businesses within our collaborative network. After successfully completing six months or 1040 hours of subsidized work, participants gain unsubsidized jobs with their host employer or employment opportunities elsewhere.

Brian says all he has ever wanted to do is help people. He received a sociology major and criminal justice minor from Whitewater to pursue that goal.

He spent much of his early career doing case management for FoodShare and W2 programs. People are his passion and he just wants to help folks succeed.

We admire that attitude!

A proud father of 2, he had a booming smile talking about his kids, Makenzie and Brian, whom he wanted to give a shoutout to!

He's also a big leader in his community and church, the Unity Gospel House of Prayer. We love his community participation and spirit! It's very apparent every day at the SSNC!

Brian is the epitome of a team player. One of the first things he brought up was how thankful he is to work with such an amazing group of folks. He attributes the success of our program to great communication he has with the team.

They all have each others backs and he wants to thank Carla, Latrice and Deneisha for being such great coworkers!

Joining the team in January, it's pretty obvious how difficult of a time to start a gig like this must have been!

It's an incredibly tough job normally, but with unemployment exceptionally higher due to COVID, the work this team does has never been more important!

We want to applaud Brian for his unwavering commitment to the community. His passion for people is on display every single day. His tireless efforts to improve people's situations and help them succeed is an attitude we all should strive for!

That's why he is our...

This is Tammy Flowers, a Lead Teacher at the Elaine Schreiber Child Development Center here at the SSNC.

If you're unfamiliar with the Schreiber Center, it's a 4 Star YoungStar rated childcare center where we serve around 100 kids a day (in a normal year anyways) 6 weeks to 12 years old!

Tammy has been with us for 23 years! She started in a program through the Milwaukee Center for Independence, working a 6 month course here at the center.

She's been a staple here ever since

Every day, Tammy works with around 5 infants, ages 5-9 months! She makes sure the kids are safe, the rooms are clean, their development schedules are on track, and goes over their growth with the parents.

One of her favorite parts of the job is watching the kids grow up! The kids she had when she first started are now in their 20s and they still remember Ms. Tammy!

Tammy always goes above and beyond to make sure her skills are staying sharp. She's even taking further child education classes at the MATC!

Tammy has shown a commitment to our neighborhood like few others. She has been a staple here for decades, caring for our very youngest daily. We are so thankful to have such caring people helping raise the most precious asset any community has.

That's why she is our...
