TOGETHER, WE CAN SAVE THE SOLDIERS HOME
A coalition of organizations and volunteers dedicated to saving the Soldiers Home have launched a capital campaign to raise the private funds needed to restore historic buildings in the Soldiers Home Historic District to their original purpose - the service of veterans.
Partners in the campaign include the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, Milwaukee Preservation Alliance, Center for Veterans Issues, and the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee.Learn more about the project here.
