100+ Women Who Care
Milwaukee Metro West
Donations of $7,373 Are Delivered To Meta House as the Chosen Charity
for November Meeting of 100+ Women Who Care-MKE Metro West
The donations from our November 2023 meeting of $7,373 that were collected for Meta House have been delivered to this excellent charity. Above shows the delivery of our checks to Carryn Sami, Director of Development, by Barb Arthur and Jane Condon on December 5.
We were given a tour of their buildings and an overview of the work Meta does in helping women and children in the greater Milwaukee area. This organization provides a supportive living environment for low-income families with women head-of-households undergoing substance use disorder treatment. Meta House gives gender-responsive treatment to women with substance abuse and mental health disorders including children and other family members.
Meta House has been a United Way partner since 1973. While the cornerstone of the program is substance use treatment, Meta House also offers parenting, vocational, and educational services to clients and a host of services for their children. This holistic approach ensures that as a woman gets well, her entire family has the tools to successfully adapt to a life of recovery.
Your donation is transforming lives in a deeply meaningful and tangible way. When you donated to Meta House, you offer women the strength, hope, and resources necessary to help them overcome their substance use disorder and thrive in recovery. A cornerstone of their work is ending the generational cycle of addiction. Your support also educates and empowers the children and loved ones of their clients to lead healthy and happy lives. Thank you for choosing to take part in this life-changing work!
At our March 26 meeting, Carryn Sami, Director of Development at META House, will give a brief overview of their plans in using our donations.
Below is the upcoming date for our meeting in March at O-Donoghue's Irish Pub in Elm Grove:

100+ Women Who Care MKE Metro West
100+ Women Who Care of Milwaukee Metro West strives to strengthen our communities by providing funds to local charities committed to improving the lives of people in communities west of Milwaukee.
Our mission is to bring together, for one hour every four months, at least 100 women. Each member contributes $100, personally or through a team, to a local charity chosen by members in that one hour that will make a difference in our communities.
Come join us to make a difference while you are having fun! You not only will be improving the lives of others but will be enriching your own life.
The kind clothing donations that many brought to our November meeting have been delivered to Rebecca Surges and Debbie Duskey of St. Vincent de Paul just in time as our temperatures drop. It is such an important way that we are making a difference in our communities by helping those truly in need of warm clothing for our bitter winters.
If you are able to provide any more of these clothing items, please call (414) 462-7863 and they will arrange to get the items to the meal site location. You can also drop items off at 4476 S. 108 Street or email them at email@example.com with any questions.
Thank you for your help in this important way.
The Mission of 100 WWC-MMW is to bring together, for one hour every four months, at least 100 women who each contribute $100 to a local charity, chosen in that one hour, that will make a significant difference in our communities. In 2019 we gave three charities $29,200--Kathy's House, Association for the Rights of Citizens with handicaps, and The Women's Center of Waukesha. In 2020, despite the pandemic, we gave $33,920 to local charities to help our neighbors.
The total we have contributed since our founding seven years ago is over $200,000--contributions that have helped citizens in our communities live better lives.
