Sojourner Family Peace Center, located in Milwaukee, transforms lives impacted by domestic violence.

In October 2014, Sojourner celebrated the start of construction for a new Family Peace Center. Based on the nationally known and proven Family Justice Center model, the new Center will transform our community’s response to family violence and ultimately make Milwaukee and its surrounding communities a healthier, safer and more peaceful place to live. This model is a best practice for delivering care to families impacted by domestic violence.

The new building is located at 619 West Walnut Street in Milwaukee and is scheduled to open in late 2015. This co-located center will offer coordinated services for those impacted by domestic violence. In addition to moving and expanding the current shelter, Sojourner Truth House, and the 24-hour hotline, Sojourner is joined with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Police Department, and the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office, among others at the site.

This year, WaterStone Bank and Brewers Community Foundation are partnering to benefit Sojourner through the “K’s For A Cause” program.  WaterStone Bank and BCF will each make a donation to the Sojourner Family Peace Center for every strikeout recorded by a Brewers pitcher at Miller Park during the 2015 season (399 so far this season–49 of which have come from Lohse.

The strikeout total for each game and the season is displayed on the “strikeout meter” sign at Miller Park, which is located on the right field fascia.

Brewers Community Foundation Announces Partnership with Waterstone Bank

Brewers Community Foundation today announced a new partnership with WaterStone Bank.  Through the partnership, WaterStone Bank will serve as the title sponsor for an in-stadium promotion called “WaterStone Bank’s K’s for a Cause.”

WaterStone Bank and Brewers Community Foundation will each make a donation to the Sojourner Family Peace Center for every strikeout recorded by a Brewers pitcher at Miller Park during the 2014 season.  At a later date this season, a Brewers pitcher and Brewers Community Foundation staff will join representatives from WaterStone Bank for a visit to the Sojourner Family Peace Center.

“We have had a longstanding partnership with Sojourner Family Peace Center.  The work they do for families is critical to the well-being of our community,” said Brewers Community Foundation Executive Director Cecelia Gore.  “We are thrilled to partner with WaterStone Bank.  This effort increases the impact we can have to improve the quality of life for others.”

WaterStone Bank and Sojourner Family Peace Center will receive logo messaging on the “strikeout meter” sign at Miller Park, which is located on the right field fascia.  The display will include the total number of strikeouts by Brewers pitchers at Miller Park this season.

Over the past four seasons, Brewers pitchers have recorded the second-most strikeouts at home (2,698) among all Major League teams.  Only the Atlanta Braves have tallied more strikeouts in their home ballpark during this stretch (2,715).

“It is an honor to partner with Brewers Community Foundation to continue our relationship with the Sojourner Family Peace Center,” said Doug Gordon, President and Chief Executive Officer of WaterStone Bank. “We appreciate the significant contributions they each make to our community.”
