Description of Agency/Activities: There are three program divisions within the Milwaukee Rescue Mission: Safe Harbor, Joy House, and CrossTrainers Academy. Safe Harbor provides food, clothing and shelter for homeless men along with long-term recovery programs. The Joy House gives food, shelter and support to women and children, both in a short term emergency program (New Life Program) and in a transitional living program (Fresh Start). CrossTrainers Academy is a participant in the Milwaukee Parental CHOICE Program and offers a quality Christian education to the city’s at-risk children. There is a strong Christian underpinning to all aspects of the Rescue Mission. Service Learners say this site is a great experience, and stress that you must take initiative in interaction with clients.
