UU Church West’s “Split the Plate” program is one of outreach and generosity. Each month we give half of all undesignated offerings to a non-profit organization, to help us live out our Unitarian Universalist values and serve our community.
Our Split the Plate Partner from mid-July until the end of August is Repairers of the Breach. ROTB is a grassroots outreach program for persons who are homeless. It is Milwaukee’s only resource center and daytime refuge for adults who are homeless and is open six days a week. Its mission is “to combat homelessness by providing life-saving, life-sustaining and life-restoring programs.” These programs include a medical clinic (providing not only care for the homeless but also hands-on experience for medical and nursing students), a soup kitchen, a clothing bank, access to showers, access to psychiatric outreach, job search support, AODA recovery support, anger management classes, a telephone/message service and mail service, outreach to veterans, linkages to other agencies, and lists of housing resources.
