The Third Annual Fundraiser for the Milwaukee Rescue Mission


A message from Attorney John A. Birdsall:

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As a volunteer to the Mission for the past 6 years, I have personally witnessed many success stories of people whose lives have been turned around by the dedicated Mission staff. I hope you can join me on July 31, 2014 at 5:30 PM at The Wisconsin Club in support of one of the most important charitable organizations in our city.

– John A. Birdsall

 All the donations go directly to the Rescue Mission and support various programs such as:

·       250 guest beds available for nightly use by homeless men in Milwaukee.

·       The 12 Month Life Skills program that takes at-risk men off the street and gives them shelter, helping them to overcome chemical dependency, coordinating appropriate education, and help in securing gainful employment.

·       The 6 Month FOCUS program to take graduates from the Life Skills program into a transitional phase that involves actual employment and debt repayment of more than $324,000 since 1997.  An increase of almost 10% in the last 12 months.

·       100 mothers and children living at the Joy House that provides safe housing and a positive environment as they rebuild their lives from often difficult domestic situations.

·       The Cross Trainers choice school that provides high-quality education from kindergarten through 7th graders.
