BUILD Health Sherman Park

Main Content

Over the past year the partners, Ascension Wisconsin, Office of Violence Prevention, Sherman Park Community Association, and United Way, of BUILD Health Challenge Sherman Park have been quite busy.  The COVID-19 pandemic offered an opportunity to serve the immediate needs of the Historic Sherman Park community.  Efforts went to providing items such as face masks, hand sanitizer, and other items to meet the basic needs of the residents.  In response to the economic crisis many have and are facing, BUILD Sherman Park was also able to provide $100 gift cards to nearly 75 families at the end of 2020.  Even small things matter.  BUILD is now preparing to focus on the future, welcoming our BUILD Health Challenge Sherman Park Community Council.

My goal is to change the landscape of the city for residents, families, and youth starting with Sherman Park through advocacy, activism, providing and connecting resources, and maintaining a safe and healthy quality of life.

I moved to Sherman Park because I fell in love with a house and wanted to live closer to my job, but I had no idea how much I would fall in love with the neighborhood. My dream is to improve the communication and connectedness of the community. I want us to stay in the neighborhood for groceries, shopping, eating out, and going out instead of driving across town. I want us to know our neighbors and look out for each other.

I was raised in the Sherman Park community and my friends and I frequent Sherman Park. My husband and I purchased a home and raised our daughter in Sherman Park. My dream for Sherman Park is that it's once again a safe and clean place for children to play. I want there to be no more blight but a beautiful place to live, work and enjoy safely.
