On Thursday, February 4, 2016, elected officials, community leaders, project funders, partners and community residents gathered to celebrate a milestone for Milwaukee, the grand opening of the Sojourner Family Peace Center. The new center at 135 West Wells Street will transform the community’s response to family violence, ultimately making greater Milwaukee a healthier, safer and more peaceful place to live. Sojourner and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin have formed a unique partnership to provide adult and child-focused services to families in Greater Milwaukee. Using a proven, collaborative model, which combines co-located service providers in one easily accessible location, victims of domestic violence and their families have access to more integrated, streamlined and efficient services.
