MILWAUKEE — With COVID-19 cases on the rise, Repairers of the Breach is working to still meet the needs of Milwaukee's homeless population, without having access to valued volunteers.
A critical need being water. Repairers is the only source of water for many of the homeless. Since the shelter is having issues sourcing it, they're also seeking donations to help with the increased costs.

"I often think of what the homeless go through and how we can support them. I realized, with all the public places closed, we are the only place to go for water. Water! An essential need for life," said Rev. James W. West Jr, Executive Director of Repairers of the Breach.
