Dan McCarthy, Director of Urban Development at Zilber Property, presented on Milwaukee’s Ten Year Plan to eliminate homelessness by examining the key components of this strategic plan including the demographics of who is homeless in Milwaukee and the Plan’s Four Pillars approach of (1) Prevention and Emergency Services, (2) Economic Support and Employment, (3) Mental Health, Substance Abuse, and Support Services and (4) Permanent Housing. To complement this macro perspective, he also explored how one of the city’s most successful shelters provides a safe environment for women and families while working to end homelessness, one life at a time.
