Members of our cluster parishes serve in various community-based programs, including:
ST BEN'S MEAL PROGRAM - St. Ben’s Community Meal site serves a hot, home-made dinner six nights a week, Sunday to Friday, 5:15 – 6:30 pm. Over 100,000 meals are served each year. All are welcome and are considered family in a community that shares a warm, safe environment.
SHOREHAVEN BINGO - Since 1939, Shorehaven in Oconomowoc has earned the trust of older adults, family members and the community. In addition to regular visits, our parish members help with Bingo on the 1st Monday of every month. St Joan's members provide the prizes for the bingo winners. Helpers are always needed and interested parishioners can contact: Dick & Delores Rose EMAIL
MEALS ON WHEELS - Home delivered meals are available to homebound persons age 60 and older and their spouse, regardless of their age. The person must be a resident of Waukesha County, unable to prepare adequate nutritious meals, and unable to attend a senior dining center. Meals are delivered between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm.
LAKE COUNTRY CARING - Founded in 1990, Lake Country Caring (“LCC”) originally operated out of the basements of Waukesha County residents. In 1995 we moved to a donated, converted home in Delafield, Wisconsin. In 2006, we purchased our current location in Hartland. The facility is open to clients three days per week to provide clothing, toys, and various household items to anyone in need. Donated items are never sold.
HOPE CENTER - WAUKESHA - All of our programs focus on the prevention of homelessness. There is no greater need than reliable shelter to instill hope and provide a foundation to build on. There is no greater requirement than everyone being treated with respect and equality.Whether it’s a meal at our Outreach Meal Program or Day Center, clean “like-new” clothing from our Clothing Shop, furniture and/or appliances from our Project Move, or Financial Aid, all is provided free of charge and delivered in a respectful and welcoming manner. What started in 1987 as a small group of pastors from the Waukesha area has grown into a mission supported by area congregations, local businesses, and individuals. Hope Center has been helping local families with their basic needs of financial aid, food, clothing, and furniture for almost thirty years, free of charge.
