What We Do
The South Shore Regional Interfaith Neighborhood Outreach office helps older adults in the neighborhood remain living in their own homes in a safe and dignified manner. By providing direct support to older adults, we help them stay closely connected to and engaged with their communities while leading active, independent lives.
In 2013, three Interfaith neighborhood sites in the Southeast quadrant of Milwaukee county —Cudahy/St. Francis (’77), Southeast (‘80) and South Milwaukee/Oak Creek (’90) merged into a pilot site called South Shore Regional. Located at Trinity Lutheran Church, the pilot program allows for increased client home visits, volunteer interaction and community outreach through the work of a staff of four who have secured many new clients and volunteers.

Who is eligible?
Adults age 60 and up living in Milwaukee County are eligible for our free services. There are no income restrictions.
Volunteers Make the Difference.
We rely on the support of kindhearted volunteers to visit with older adults, provide transportation, shop, help read mail, fill out forms, rake leaves, shovel snow, make minor home repairs and help with other daily tasks, as well as lend a helping hand in the Neighborhood office. As a Neighborhood Outreach volunteer, you will be paired with an older adult whose needs match your schedule and interests, and who lives right in your own neighborhood. You can volunteer as often or as little as you wish.
We could use your help! Become a volunteer.
