Project Description

We are requesting assistance to transform a residential home into a small youth arts center.

Phases, Inc is a new small non profit organization whose mission is to provide quality programs for youth and their families that promote brighter futures and life success. We are taking the first step toward our mission by launching House for the Arts (HARTS), to provide free arts programming for Milwaukee's inner city youth whose arts experiences are limited due to various barriers. Some of the arts activities include: creative writing, spoken word, poetry, instrument lessons, and knitting. Our goal through HARTS is to make the arts as readily available and accessible for youth in the neighborhood as the parks.

The location that we would like to transform is an abandoned residential home built in 1908 that is currently 1082 square feet with an adjoining 60 x 120 square foot lot available to build out.
