Weathering the COVID-19 pandemic has been hard for all of us, but imagine trying to weather it without a safe or reliable home. That’s the reality for thousands of young people in Milwaukee.
For decades, Pathfinders has offered resources to Milwaukee’s youth to help them find stability. The organization aims to make sure young people’s basic needs are met by ensuring they have a safe place where they can sleep, shower, eat, do laundry, and be with trusted peers and adults. The We Energies Foundation is proud to support Pathfinders’ efforts.
In addition to helping with day-to-day needs, the organization also offers case management, employment resources, education and mental health services to individuals who have experienced sexual abuse or exploitation, youth aging out of foster care, youth of color, LGBTQ+ individuals and other vulnerable young people. In 2019, Pathfinders reached more than 5,000 young people.
Since the early 1980s, We Energies has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in communities across the state.
