Split the Plate is one of UUCW’s programs of outreach and generosity.  Each month we give half of all undesignated offering monies to a non-profit organization as a way to help us live our Unitarian Universalist values and serve our community. In December the UUCW Split the Plate program supports Meta House of Milwaukee.

Meta House ends the generational cycle of addiction by healing women and strengthening families.

Meta House has been blazing new trails in women’s drug and alcohol addiction treatment since our doors opened in 1963. The agency is noted as one of the first residential treatment facilities in the country designed specifically for women. In 1988, Meta House became one of the first treatment centers to allow women to bring their children to live with them in residential treatment and receive supportive services simultaneously.


Programs offered at Meta House include:

  • inpatient residential treatment;
  • a tiered outpatient program; and
  • Meta Sober Living Community

At all levels of care, Meta House provides an array of services that help participants address all of the issues they face as women and mothers. In addition to drug and alcohol addiction treatment, Meta House provides parenting education and hands-on coaching; prevention and intervention services for the children of the mothers we serve and services to address income, employability, basic skills of daily living, mental and physical health and trauma resolution.

This holistic approach ensures that as mom gets well, her family has the tools to adapt to a life in recovery. For more information about Meta House, http://metahouse.org/
