Help Dominican Center serve the residents of Amani!

Our Mobile Food Pantry and Resource fair will help more than 100 local families receive fresh health food, hygiene items, and resources to support their safety, housing, employment, education and family well-being.

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin will provide food, diapers and more to each resident. Residents can choose which food and hygiene items they need, or they can receive a pre-packed box without leaving their vehicles. Volunteers will help organize and replenish food items and residents come through, help people register for the event, help pre-pack boxes and point residents in the direction of the resource they need. The event is from 12-2pm, volunteer shift is 11-2:30pm. The event is held at Dominican Center, 2470 W. Locust St, Milwaukee; in the parking lot.

Mission Statement

OUR MISSION Dominican Center works with Amani residents and partners to build a better future. OUR APPROACH People's lives are powerfully shaped by the neighborhoods in which they live. The Dominican Center believes Amani residents are closest to the solutions needed to revitalize the neighborhood. But they can't do it alone. We are all interconnected and impacted by the challenges faced in the Amani neighborhood. Our work supports resident-led efforts to create positive social change, and we need your help to achieve our vision.

Description

The Dominican Center was founded in 1995 by Sinsinawa Dominicans Sister Ann Halloran, OP and Sister Anne-Marie Doyle, OP, as a holistic approach to education and women’s programs in the Amani neighborhood.

In 2012, the Obama administration launched the Building Neighborhood Capacity Program (BNCP) to catalyze community-driven change in neighborhoods that have historically faced barriers to revitalization (including poverty and underlying critical issues of education, employment, housing, health and safety).Through the BNCP, the Dominican Center was designated as the neighborhood partner, or "anchor" for the neighborhood, to support resident decision-making and involvement in the program.

Over the past 25 years, the role of the Dominican Center has shifted from an organization that provides services to one that also convenes partners together with residents in support of its priority areas of safety, housing and economic development, and education and family well-being.
