ENDING POVERTY IN ALL ITS FORMS

Children remain the poorest age group in America. For those living in zip code 53233, where City on a Hill is located, 71.2%* of children under the age of 18 live below the poverty level ranking it among the worst 25% of US Zip Codes.

Since City on a Hill was established in 2001, we’ve been pursuing one ambitious goal: to end the cycle of generational poverty and oppression in the lives of urban youth and their families. While issues of poverty and oppression in Milwaukee’s central city are huge and complex, our collaborative, Christ-centered model of service is unleashing the transformational potential of people living in some of the toughest neighborhoods in the country. Our holistic approach engages and empowers people with the spiritual, social, educational, and economic resources they need to realize their full potential and make transformational change possible, restoring hope, reducing poverty, strengthening families, and fostering racial reconciliation.

OUR GOAL: REDUCE CHILDHOOD POVERTY BY 50%

We’re reaching over 1,000 children and youth around the city of Milwaukee annually and have set a bold goal to dramatically reduce the rates of child poverty in area neighborhoods by 2033. Along with a robust network of alumni and partners we seek to reduce child poverty by half in the neighborhoods we serve within the next 10 years.

Combining our faith in Jesus Christ with tangible action, we bring healing, hope and harmony to the communities we serve. In the coming decade we will build:

  • Strong & Healthy Families 
  • Supportive Communities 
  • Opportunities to Learn & Thrive
