Milwaukee short term and transitional housing programs.

Non-profits and other centers in Milwaukee Wisconsin can offer transitional housing and support services to income qualified individuals and the homeless. While using the resources clients can also explore additional assistance programs, such as job training and educational services. The goal of these transitional housing programs are to both provide clients a place to stay and help them find and pay for long term, permanent housing.

Some of the centers focus on assisting veterans, single parents, or children. Others are committed to helping anyone in the Milwaukee County region, regardless of their background and personal situation. If one of the non-profits can't meet your needs then they may be able to provide referrals or other guidance.

When you are struggling, facing eviction, or if you are currently homeless, do not hesitate to contact one of these shelter or housing programs in Milwaukee. While resources are limited and there may be a waiting list, thousands of individuals from the community will usually receive assistance over the course of a year.
