Capuchin Community Services has received eyewitness reports of an individual or group of individuals who may be fraudulently soliciting donations for the House of Peace outside local businesses around the Milwaukee area. Capuchin Community Services never asks people on the street to make donations for House of Peace or St. Ben’s Community Meal.
Online registration is now open for the 2019 Capuchin Walk for the Hungry, taking place at 6pm on June 14, 2019 at Milwaukee Summerfest Grounds during Polish Fest. Don't miss this chance to support Capuchin Community Services and its mission of serving our neighbors struggling with homelessness, poverty and hunger.
All are welcome to come to an open house on Sunday, April 28, 1-3pm. Sponsors, donors, volunteers and those interested are encouraged to attend. Tours will be given by staff. Light refreshments will be provided. Limited parking is available, free parking on street. Please RSVP!
Join us on Thursday, May 2, 3 PM, for a Memorial Service to remember the homeless individuals who have died in the last year. Ascension Columbia St. Mary's St. Ben’s Clinic partners with St. Benedict the Moor Parish in honoring these individuals.
People often think of the holidays as the time of year people go hungry. However, hunger is a daily problem for many of our guests and we are frequently unable to keep our Emergency Food Pantry shelves adequately stocked.
We encourage volunteers to perform a Ministry of Presence: to sit with our guests, engage them in conversation, meet them on their terms, and share your experiences. That is the greatest gift one person can give to another: to be wholly present, to listen, to be attentive, to show care.
