Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

Combating Poverty in Milwaukee

  • Print

Statistics show Milwaukee is the 4th poorest big city in the nation. 44 percent of children live in a family where no parent has full-time annual employment. Such alarming statistics must be addressed. That puts thousands of lives in jeopardy every year.  Where do people turn when they are living in or on the edge of poverty?

A local agency is making strides in turning lives around. Set Ministry Incorporated  has 22 offices throughout the city of Milwaukee. It's working to improve the lives of those in poverty. It's primary goal is to teach self-sufficiency. Learn more about SET in an upcoming Positively Milwaukee. Find out why it's an organization you may not have heard much about, but one that certainly deserves the spotlight. Watch for it on Live at Five.
