There are many ways to share your gifts with the Dominican Center.
Housing For years, the Dominican Center has collaborated with partners and volunteers to make minor repairs to homes in the Amani neighborhood. Recently, Amani United has secured a grant program for residents of Amani to purchase items at Community Warehouse to repair their homes. Each resident can apply for $75 worth of supplies to aid their repairs. If you're an Amani resident, fill out this form and email it to BadDNeal@gmail.com. For more information, contact Housing/Economic Development Chair Dana Williamson at 262.457.1440.
Education Volunteer tutors are an integral part of our adult education programming, providing both academic support as well as friendship. We believe the care and trust fostered through these friendships is critical to the self and community efficacy necessary to achieve neighborhood revitalization.
Tutors are asked to commit at least two hours, one day per week. Sessions are held Monday through Thursday, 9 to 11:30 a.m. If you’re interested in making a difference in the life of a student, please contact Dr. Barbara Wells at 414-444-9930. Reading specialists and those with teaching experience are especially needed.
