March Mission of the Month

Written by Wesley

On Mar 2, 2021
The Mission for March (loose change offering) is the United Methodist Children’s Services of Wisconsin (UMCS) which is located in Milwaukee. The following information is from their website:
“Why does Washington Park need United Methodist Children’s Services?
The Washington Park Neighborhood of Milwaukee is one rich with history. A community that came to be through the development of both a city park and industrial growth, Washington Park carries a legacy of a diverse community of people from all walks of life, with the city park as a cornerstone of the community.
But Washington Park faces challenges too, and they are ones that reflect many other parts of the city of Milwaukee. With an unemployment rate of over 15%, and almost 50% of the population living below the poverty line, families in this neighborhood struggle with finding a sense of stability and hope.”
The UMCS provides assistance with housing and childcare and helps with basic needs. For example, the organization’s Family Resource Center provides a food bank, a clothing bank, and hygiene products. For families in UMCS housing and the nearby neighborhood, the UMCS provides daycare through The Growing Tree Children’s Center. The statelicensed center offers childcare during the first shift, and the Center’s programs include “early literacy.”
