For over 15 years, Divine Intervention has been providing a warming room for people

experiencing homelessness. Each season, from December 1 through March 31,
20 adults find a safe and supportive environment at Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church (125 W Saveland Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53207). Our guests are referred to us through

Milwaukee’s Continuum of Care (2-1-1) and agree to a covenant that supports

community life and provides a safe space for all. Guests are admitted at 6 pm and leave

the following morning by 8 am. Guests engage in community life by taking turns

washing dishes, shoveling sidewalks, and weekly cleaning of common spaces.

Transportation to laundry once per week is offered and laundry expenses are covered.

Dinner is served family style every evening (churches who partner with us in this

ministry bring in a prepared meal each night and join us for dinner). A continental

breakfast is provided each morning before guests head out for the day, and they have

access to “to go” foods they can pack for midday.

logistical aspects that enable us to attend to those who are seeking shelter, safety,

support and sustenance.
