Whom We Serve

Our Residents Typically Are:

  • Homeless, between ages of 18 and 26
  • Pregnant or young mothers from 53205 - 53206 zip codes and African American

All are working to overcome some of the following:

  • Childhood trauma
  • Chronic homelessness
  • Violence & sexual abuse
  • Unemployment
  • Mental health issues
  • Educational and job training deficiencies

Milwaukee’s homelessness problem is significant and growing. In  the last couple of years, Nia Imani Family calls for housing have increased 50% compared to past years.

Our clients have some of the most troubled, traumatic histories of any group. These mothers’ troubles will become their children’s troubles, unless the cycle is broken. Few, if any, Milwaukee organizations help address this range of profound and chronic needs onsite, while also providing safe housing.
