Who/What is Journey House?
Journey House empowers families on Milwaukee’s near Southside to move out of poverty by offering adult education, youth development, workforce readiness, and family engagement. Unique to other organizations, Journey House works toward creating an opportunity for every individual and family that they serve to succeed and contribute personally, professionally, and civically to the neighborhood and our greater Milwaukee community by providing tools and resources. Aligned with their focus on the Family, the Young Milwaukee Holiday Gala creates a memorable holiday season for Journey House families by providing toys and funds for the children they serve and relieving parents of the taxing pressure of providing holiday gifts they don’t have the funds to do at this time in their life.
