Shechem will be a haven of hope for the community, as well as a bridge for Hope Street members as they transition back into daily life beyond our doors. Through this project, Hope Street will provide a safe environment to live, learn and develop new habits in the community.
Shechem will be an on ramp for the greater community to experience similarities to life at Hope Street. The spaces inside Shechem will provide opportunities for life skills development, building community, exchange of resources, fun, and job readiness. Shechem will be home to a gymnasium, café, classroom and event spaces. All of which cultivate a culture of growth and human flourishing.
Our safe haven will be open to the greater Milwaukee community in order for urban, suburban and rural communities to gather, grow and learn from one another. Shechem will provide a safe and healthy environment for developing positive relationships while closing cultural gaps.
