Franciscan Peacemakers addresses the needs and issues of women in the Greater Milwaukee area who are seeking a way out of prostitution due to trauma, human sex trafficking or drug addiction. Our humble service is rooted in Franciscan Spirituality, incorporating a holistic healing approach emphasizing the human dignity of every person. We do this in 5 ways: (1) Outreach: Street Ministry, (2) Housing: Clare Community, (3) Social Enterprise: Gifts for the Journey, (4) Education: Speaking and Advocacy, and (5) in partnership with You: Critical Financial and Spiritual Support.
