Making Milwaukee Great
Hundreds of Milwaukee public school children are seeing better thanks to Wisconsin Vision.
Glendale Mentoring Program
They're too young to have a real job, but some local middle school students sure feel like they do. The students are part of a mentoring program put together by the Glendale-River Hills School District and the Bayshore Town Center Foundation.
March of Dimes- March for Babies

MS Run The US
A Brookfield woman will soon run the equivalent of six marathons in six days. It's part of a coast to coast relay to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis, a disease that affects her family.
There’s a special home in Milwaukee that most people don’t know about. It’s called Lissy’s Place. It’s a safe haven for young women who are homeless, abused or have grown out of the foster care system. It might sound like a shelter, but it’s much more.
Our Town America
It can be stressful to pack up everything and move to a new neighborhood or city. Our Town America is trying to lessen that stress by welcoming people when they move to the Milwaukee area.
Every year in Wisconsin nearly 2,000 people dedicate themselves to serving the community as part of AmeriCorps. In Milwaukee, 26 of those people work with a local non-profit called College Possible that's committed to helping local kids get a higher education.
Milwaukee Pets Alive
Every year about seven-thousand animals are killed in Milwaukee County. They have to be put down because they don't have a home and there's not enough room to keep them. Now a fairly new non-profit organization, Milwaukee Pets Alive, is working to change that.
Milwaukee Center For Independence
Milwaukee- The Milwaukee Center For Independence is celebrating a big milestone. The center is now in its 75th year of helping people with special needs or disabilities achieve their highest level of independence. Joe Nesbit is one of those people. About a year and a half ago, his life took an unexpected turn.
