Walnut Way’s 20th year is on the horizon as we approach 2020. As we close this decade, I’m reminded of how far Lindsay Heights has come together to build a stronger community. It’s also a time to reflect on the health, employment and economic challenges we face. There are many solutions at hand that Walnut Way works towards under the umbrella of our Wellness, Work, and Wealth Programs. I would like to thank you for your continued support on our collective journey. It can’t be done alone.

The King Holiday is more important than we could ever imagine for several reasons. Martin Luther King Day reminds us to appreciate that we are one nation of diverse people with unique cultural gifts and talents. It also reminds us that we can heal…and errors of the past can be corrected both in our government and our individual beliefs and values. King Day also directs our attention toward the possibility of a brighter future shaped and shared by all.

Executive Director, Antonio Butts, discusses his approach to his work at Walnut Way in the latest story by JACKSON DUFAULT, CONOR STANLEY, KHALEEQ SATTAAR EL, Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service.
Jeff knew he wanted to work with his hands. He came from a family of builders. He couldn’t see his dream or realize his vision because he was isolated, unemployed, and nearly homeless. In the Lindsay Heights community, a common barrier for men seeking long-term employment is a lack of social support. When Jeff joined the Men’s Wellness Group at Walnut Way, it was his first step towards becoming well. Through the course of two years, Jeff engaged in programs at Walnut Way that focus on supporting community members through the building blocks of Wellness, Work, and Wealth.
