BUILD Sherman Park

BUILD Sherman Park

Milwaukee’s Sherman Park neighborhood, long associated with the systemic inequities its residents experience, is poised for rebirth. BUILD Sherman Park will engage community members around The Milwaukee Blueprint for Peace, a community-driven agenda for addressing the complex factors that drive violence in our city.

United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County and partners Ascension Wisconsin, City of Milwaukee Health Department’s Office of Violence Prevention, and The Sherman Park Neighborhood Association, Inc. have received the BUILD Health Challenge® award.

The award provides $250,000 in funding and additional resources to support community-driven strategies in the Sherman Park neighborhood. The overall objectives of the project are to increase resident well-being and prevent violence.

In addition, Ascension Wisconsin has committed to provide $336,000 in matching support to ensure the project's success.
