Neighborhood House History:
Established in 1945, the mission of Neighborhood House of Milwaukee (NH) is to build a strong community by strengthening individuals, families, and the neighborhood. One of Milwaukee’s oldest service agencies, we will celebrate our 70th anniversary this year. At NH, we believe a brighter future begins with a positive vision. Our programming opens doors for people and empowers them to improve their lives and realize their dreams. We serve over 3,000 children and families each year. Our International Learning Center, the largest refugee education effort in the State of Wisconsin, brings important refugee, citizenship and ESL services to more than 500 individuals and their families annually. Finally, our 93-acre nature center and preserve in the central Kettle Moraine of Dodge County is a key part of the strong environmental ethic that is part of our overall efforts.
Neighborhood House primarily serves a highly-impoverished central city neighborhood bounded by 35th Street on the west, 20th Street on the east, Cherry Street on the north, and Wisconsin Avenue on the south. Our services are based in our home on Richardson Place, but we also work from multiple locations in the region. More info is available at www.nh-milw.org. – less
