Our first #WishListWednesday of the new year!

Today's spotlight item is twin air mattresses. As we work to transition our clients to housing as quickly as possible, there is sometimes a gap between placement and resourcing furniture. Air mattresses provide an immediate, short term solution.

Meet Katie!

Katie loves to learn as much as she loves to teach.

It might not be obvious but she approaches every interaction with her clients as a mutual exchange of information. While she is teaching, she is also learning.

Katie says, “Every day, my clients teach me so much about life – about personal strength and resilience and about the power of kindness. They are survivors of so much and I feel privileged and proud to play a role in their journey.”

Thank you, Katie, for your service to our community! We appreciate you!

Meet Melissa!

Melissa uses her experience and education to lift her clients up.

As a recent recipient of a Bachelor of Science in Science Education in Health Care Administration from UW-Milwaukee, Melissa now has even more resources to draw upon while supporting and advocating for her clients. But her journey was also very personal; she is the first in her family to earn a college degree.

Melissa says, “One of my favorite sayings is ‘we rise by lifting others’ and it really speaks to the work I do at Guest House. I often encounter clients that are at really low points in their lives and the only way to go is up but they can’t see it. That is where I come in, to help them find their way up – and out!”

Thank you, Melissa, for your service to our community and congratulations on receiving your degree! We appreciate you!

Felicia brings a passion to her work at Guest House that is second to none!

When Felicia is at work, she exudes a level of joy and enthusiasm that is contagious. Her lived experience allows her to connect with the clients in a way that is compassionate, genuine, and motivating.

Felicia says, “Nothing compares to being exactly where you are meant to be. I know that God put me here, at Guest House, to help people just like He put others in my path to help me when I needed it.”

Thank you, Felicia, for your service to our community! We appreciate you!

Meet Keerthana & Jagadish!

Keerthana & Jagadish recently learned about Guest House while researching opportunities to serve the community on the United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County's volunteer portal.

The opportunity to prepare and provide a meal for our shelter guests was not only an ideal commitment for Keerthana, Jagadish, and others who have begun to support their efforts, but also something that was aligned with their core beliefs.

Keerthana says, “Like shelter, food is a basic need and one that we joyfully prepare. Supporting each other in fulfilling basic needs is a step towards creating a world filled with peace and compassion. In fact, the name of our group is SAMALOKYA which means ‘same view’ and reminds us of the importance of treating others in a way that we would also want to be treated.”

Thank you, Keerthana & Jagadish, for your service to our community! We appreciate you!

Meet Kelly!

Working as a social worker gave Kelly a perspective that the people she was helping were not that different from her – they were just presented very different circumstances than her own.

As a result, she grew a desire and a responsibility for helping others facing difficult situations due to inequity and injustice.

Kelly says, “I was drawn to Guest House out of our mutual desire to repair our community. I stayed because of the vast opportunities to serve – especially with my children. Most organizations have an age minimum but Guest House does not. I appreciate that while we’re serving and making a difference, my children are able to broaden their worldview and learn how to help in meaningful, dignified ways.”

Meet Joycelyn!

Joycelyn believes in showing kindness, care, concern, and sympathy for others.

In her role as ministry executive administrator at Berean Family Worship Center, Joycelyn sees firsthand that Guest House holds these same values.

Joycelyn says, “Compassion is standing in the gap with others not just in words, but in ACTION. Because of the way Guest House shows compassion for those who have encountered misfortune, we are honored to partner and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Guest House throughout the community.”

Thank you, Joycelyn, for your service to our community! We appreciate you!

Meet Jerry!

Jerry is someone who answers the call every time we need help – delivering a meal from one of our restaurant partners, picking up donations in the community, making masks for our staff and clients.

While his actions are often in the moment, he volunteers with the future in mind.

Jerry says, “I help now as an investment in the health and wellness of our community for the generations yet to come.”

Normally on Christmas Day, we are joined by more than two dozen volunteers to host our gift distribution and celebration.

Meet Rev. Gaeth!

For Rev. Gaeth, “relationship” is the key to humanity. He believes that when we recognize someone else for who they are, we are able to enter into a relationship with them, wholeheartedly. He appreciates that Guest House enters into a relationship with each person served to create meaningful change.

Rev. Gaeth and Greendale Community Church UCC have had a relationship with Guest House for many years. This year, they played a critical role in providing food and supplies for our shelter and housing clients.

Rev. Gaeth says, “I believe relationship is the embodiment of God. When we are in relationships with each other, we become God’s hands and God’s feet.”

Thank you, Rev. Gaeth, for your service to our community! We appreciate you!

Meet Decorah!

Decorah first began service to Guest House as a college student at Cardinal Stritch University supporting our sandwich program. Over the years, her involvement has evolved and grown.

She now supports Guest House through donation drives coordinated through her business, Avenue Branding Company. She sees parallels between her personal and professional growth and that of those we serve and she feels blessed to have the chance to give back to her community in meaningful ways.

Decorah says, “When you allow yourself to be open to new opportunities, you are taking steps towards a new beginning – you are introducing new possibilities for yourself, and all those around you.”

Thank you, Decorah, for your service to our community! We appreciate you!

Meet Jess!

Jess has been donating to Guest House for many years and volunteering with her family since her now 7-year-old son was only 2 years old.

As one of the few local organizations without an age minimum for volunteers, Guest House feels it is important for all members of our community to play an active role in supporting each other and Jess agrees.

Jess says, “At a young age, I wanted to teach my kids that we should always choose kindness above everything else. We might not know what the person standing next to us has been through or is going through so we should help instead of judge and do what we can to make their day a little better.”

Thank you, Jess, for your service to our community! We appreciate you!

Meet Sylvester!

Sylvester recognizes his blessings, and wants to share them with others but he views his actions as giving a hand up and not a handout.

Sylvester leads a volunteer group, Elite Kingz of Faith, that has prepared dinner for our shelter guests and coordinated clothing and hygiene donation drives. (The group also partners with Elite Dollz of Faith.)

Sylvester says, “We know a lot of people are struggling. We are here to help our community, including all those at Guest House. We have been blessed so we bless others.”

Thank you, Sylvester, for your service to our community! We appreciate you!

Meet Dre!

For Dre, family is everything.

Dre’s family provides him an incredible sense of pride and joy…and inspiration.

Equally, Dre serves as a role model for others in shelter. From the moment he arrived, he has utilized the resources available and made great progress towards his ultimate goal: HOUSING!

Dre says, “I am very proud of my kids. My son is in the Air Force and my daughter is a nurse at Froedert. In addition to making me proud, they’ve given me two grandkids who love their papa! All of the hard work I’m putting in now is not just for me, but for them as well.”

Meet NaniMarie!

NaniMarie meets her clients when they are in the midst of unimaginable grief, fear, and uncertainty.

One of her first strategies is to begin to shift their perception of themselves and their situation. Her clients are often so focused on what happened that resulted in the need for services that it can sometimes be the biggest barrier to moving forward. While NaniMarie doesn’t want her clients to completely lose sight of their past, she doesn’t want it to hold them back either.

NaniMarie says, “I meet my clients at one of the worst moments of their lives. But if they don’t believe that they can succeed, this step of their journey is longer and harder. They can’t think positively under a negative light and expect to make progress!”

Thank you, NaniMarie, for your service to our community! We appreciate you!
