Promoting Assets, Reducing Crime (PARC)

Promoting Assets, Reducing Crime (PARC) is a multi-year initiative of Near West Side Partners, Inc.(NWSP), a non-profit organization funded through the support of five anchor institutions - Aurora Health Care, Harley-Davidson, Marquette University, MillerCoors and Potawatomi Business Development Corporation.

PARC is designed to support NWSP’s mission to revitalize and sustain Milwaukee's Near West Side as a thriving business and residential corridor, through collaborative efforts to promote economic development, improved housing, unified neighborhood identity and branding, and greater safety for residents and businesses.

Patrick Kennelly, director of the Center for Peacemaking, is the principal investigator of PARC. Marquette University students, faculty, and staff have participated in and contributed to this initiative.
