With these funds, our agencies collectively aim to: build upon and improve services and supports for Milwaukee’s older African American adults; and provide resources for service providers and criminal justice stakeholders to help them grow their capacity to support and engage culturally-specific service providers who are working to restore safety and security to all older African American victims.
Services and Supports
The Asha Project offers services in Milwaukee, WI designed specifically for African American victims and survivors of crime and abuse, age 50 and older. The elder victim services advocate provides cultural, age-relevant, and trauma-informed supports that honor the history, experiences, and unique challenges older adults face. Each person is treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. Please get in touch with an advocate today for support with:
case management and counseling
criminal justice systems and social services advocacy
