Madison Urban MinistryMadisonPrisoner health and health disparitiesMental Healthhttp://www.emum.org/About Us Madison-area Urban Ministry was formed in 1971 and incorporated as a non-profit agency in 1973. As Pilgrim United Church of Christ was preparing to close their doors as a congregation, they imagined a community presence that would continue to minister to the near east side of Madison. Out of this venture came the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center (housed in the old Pilgrim UCC Church) and Madison-area Urban Ministry. Since 1971 MUM has evolved into an interfaith social justice organization that has spurred social change in and around Dane County. MUM’s staff and board understand our mission to be “a prophetic voice for justice, neighbors working together for social change.” MUM has always served as an incubator for innovative ideas and new projects. Since 1973 we have incubated some of the most creative, significant programs in terms of community building in Dane County. Among those projects, Family Enhancement, Project Home, Transitional Housing, the Madison Community Health Center, the Allied Wellness Center, the Interfaith Coalition for Worker Justice of So. WI, Voices Beyond Bars, and most of the County’s Older Adult Coalitions. We currently serve as the incubator and fiscal agent for the Street Pulse Newspapers, Allied Partners and the Allied-Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood Association. Our advocacy has included: leading the successful effort to end profiteering from jail services contracts at the county level; working for a just and equitable city, county and state budget, working for criminal justice system reforms, including serving on the Dane County Racial Disparities Task Force and the Dane County Implementation Team. Our Greater Isthmus Group (GIG) engages people of faith to address the issues of homelessness and access to fair and affordable housing.

Milwaukee Fatherhood InitiativeMilwaukeeFather involvement Policy and governancehttp://www.milwaukeefatherhood.com/blog/Because of the overwhelming community response to the summit, the Mayor and the planning committee formalized the MFI, including hiring a full-time director who serves as a resource and liaison to fathers in this community. The Greater Milwaukee Foundation has provided $75,000 in initial seed funding, with the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee providing additional in-kind support. Of all the social problems facing America today, the widespread absence of fathers from the lives of children is by far the most socially consequential and costly problem. The cumulative costs of father absence directly associated with criminal justice, remedial education, family courts, and numerous family services account for a huge portion of city budgets, resulting in dramatically higher taxes, urban flight, and other problems.
