City on a Hill’s vision is to see the Lord exalted and His Kingdom enlarged as we embrace families in our neighborhood, equip Christians in our city and engage churches across our nation. City on a Hill is a catalyst working to save children, reach parents, and transform families in our central city neighborhood. We are a place of transformation. We are on a mission to break the cycle of generational poverty and bring transformation to central city families. Through a collaborative and faith-based model of service, we restore hope, reduce poverty, strengthen neighborhoods, and work for justice. Much like the settlement houses of the 1800s, we address a family’s full spectrum of needs, providing support and teaching the life skills necessary for success in education and in the work force. Health and Basic Needs: With more than 1,200 volunteers, each year we provide a wide array of services to low-income and homeless adult residents. We alleviate the burdens of poverty for more than 225 people each month Youth Development and Education: We’re in classrooms, living rooms, hospital rooms, and courtrooms if necessary, to advocate for youth, support them and hold them accountable. We equip young people to break the cycle of generational poverty. Training on Justice Issues: We engage others in solutions to poverty & injustice through training and volunteer opportunities.

Located in the heart of Milwaukee - America's 5th poorest city, where nearly 68,000 children are living in poverty - City on a Hill's vision is to break the cycle of generational poverty and bring transformation to central city neighborhoods. Through a collaborative and Christ-centered model of service, we are working to restore hope, reduce poverty, strengthen families and foster social justice.
