ON-Lion Letter

The Neu-Life Community Development organization is renovating its headquarters on Milwaukee's North Side.  Neu-Life provides after-school and Summer programming to those between the ages of 3 and 18, though many people remain with the program as they become young adults.  Its programs cover arts education, academic enrichment, service learning, and community service.

As reported by the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service's Morgan Hughes, the contractor leading the remodeling project employs three Neu-Life alumni and Neu-Life has involved kids currently in its programs in planning the renovation.

"Not only did the kids come up with the vision for the remodel, but they've also been helping along the way,” Neu-Life director Jody Rhodes told Hughes.  "This is their space; [we're building] stuff the kids want."

New bathrooms have been put in, and the building will be handicapped-accessible.  It will also have several new classrooms, a new kitchen, a computer lab, and a teen lounge.

Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation substantially supports Neu-Life's renovation.
