📣 Did you know that when you make and donate Sandwiches and Treat Bags for Guest House of Milwaukee, that the impact is felt beyond shelter? They're also offered to clients visiting our Clinic or within our community-based and offsite housing programs

These clients are able to begin their appointment with a kind note and something to eat, allowing them to engage more fully with their case manager.

Thank you to our Sandwich and Treat Bag Volunteers, for offering smiles and comfort to all those we serve!

Volunteers do a lot at Guest House! All month long, we're highlighting different volunteer activities that have a huge impact on our community!

🍎 We all know about an apple-a-day, but what can 3 meals-a-day do for our shelter guests? Not only do they fill folks up so that they can tackle their goals, but they also provide a sense of community!

Each month, our Meal Group volunteers spend more than 300 hours cooking, coordinating, and delivering food - that's a lot of lovin' in the oven! Thank you to all our Meal Group volunteers for supporting our guests!

The UNDY 500 is almost here! We are officially one month away from our annual donation drive. Between May 1 – 31, help us collect new undershirts and underwear to help provide basic needs to our guests in shelter.

For every item received at Guest House, a point is assigned to your team! New this year, we are offering an extra bonus point for every L, XL, and 2XL undershirt received! These size items are the most common among our guests and we run out quickly. The top team in each category with the most points overall wins a set of underwear keychains and bragging rights for a year! Team categories include: friends & family, faith-based, and corporate!

Last year, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in New Berlin won the faith-based category as well as the overall UNDY CHAMPS title with 1,136 points! WOW!

Who will be the UNDY CHAMPS this year? Start organizing your team and register with Alyssa by emailing [email protected] today and it might be YOU!

Last year, we added an interim housing program to our array of services called "Marsha's House" to provide short term shelter and case management for transgender adults experiencing homelessness or unstable housing.

Located at an undisclosed location for the privacy of our clients, Marsha's House provides a safe environment and supportive services for up to 4 individuals at a time.

Today, and every day, we celebrate the accomplishments of transgender people while also acknowledging the work yet to be done to achieve trans justice and equality.

Questions and to learn more about how you can support Marsha's House, please contact Amy Rowell, [email protected] or 414-315-7163.

This! Hey #TomBarrett, let’s get this done. 💙
Excellent operation Guest house does great work. Please help support it.
How can we help during this time?
I am bringing my church youth group to Wisconsin for a retreat in early June and I am interested in having our volunteer at the Guest House. I am unable to contact you through your website but would love to be able to contact you to discuss the possibility of us serving with you. I was looking at the garden and/or making sandwiches.
Can you let me know what time people are needed to help set up the cots each night at Wilson Park and if there are particular days of the week when you have fewer volunteers than others?
We are serving October 28th this month! Here is the sign up...if you'd like to donate items let me know. If you are out of town or don't want to cook---you can donate cash for the items like bread, salad, etc. Thanks! I have venmo and paypal!
I have a lot of used clothing for women, men, girls and boys? Do you accept this as donation? I’m trying to find a place that gives away the clothes for free, to the people that really need them?
