About Repairers of the Breach
Repairers of the Breach is Greater Milwaukee’s only daytime refuge and resource center for homeless adults open six days per week. We believe that offering life- saving, life-sustaining, and life-restoring programs is key to self-reliability. Repairers of the Breach is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our center is located at 1335 W. Vliet St. in Milwaukee’s central city and is open from 7 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Our daytime sanctuary is an empowering place where homeless and at-risk men and women can get the resources they need to get back on track. Whether it be food and clothing for the short-term, or education for the long-term, we are here to provide as many resources as we can, and we proudly partner with many other programs to ensure everyone gets the tools they need.
