A My Brother’s Keeper neighborhood summit next week will engage residents of the Near South Side Promise Zone with services and resources meant to help improve health and wealth.
The event – hosted by Alderman José G. Pérez and Mayor Tom Barrett – will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 22 at the Kosciuszko Park Recreational Center at 2201 S. 7th St. The summit is free and open to the public.
Alderman Pérez is hopeful that Promise Zone (please see map on attached flyer) and area residents will attend and receive help with key life management issues, including child support, driver’s license recovery, job training and employment, health information and screenings, and expungement counseling.
“Residents in the affected near south side area are underserved when it comes to counseling, job opportunities, and health and wellness information that can be beneficial and life-changing,” Alderman Pérez said. “I invite residents to come to the My Brother’s Keeper event Wednesday to engage with us and work toward improving the quality of life in their home and in the area as a whole.”
The summit is sponsored by the City of Milwaukee, My Brother’s Keeper, the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative, and the Black Male Achievement Advisory Council.
