Mission

We aim to create a neighborhood where residents are safe, connected to each other, participate in community and civic life, have access to educational and economic opportunities, and celebrate diversity and culture.

What We Do

In 2012, five Metcalfe Park resident leaders formed the Metcalfe Park Community Action Team (MPCAT) to join with neighborhood and citywide partners in considering how resident engagement could contribute to the improvement of Milwaukee's Metcalfe Park neighborhood.

The same year, Metcalfe Park was chosen as a site for the Building Neighborhood Capacity Program (BNCP), a federally-funded program that provided the financial resources and support for residents and partners to catalyze resident-driven neighborhood revitalization. Resident and partner involvement in the BNCP yielded a vision, mission and values for change, and led MPCAT to become Metcalfe Park Community Bridges.

We welcome all residents to join in developing and implementing Metcalfe Park Community Bridges' work. It is only in coming together to achieve our priorities - safety and placemaking, connectedness and cultural vibrance, civic engagement, intergenerational wealth and opportunity, and health and wellness - that we can lift up our collective power to make progress toward our long-term vision of a robust and thriving community.
