CARVE YOUR SUPPORT IN STONE!

Because we recognize that communal spaces foster connections and bring people together, our 150th Anniversary Campaign included a capital project to enhance our residents’ outdoor space, which is ideally located at the center of the five residential buildings that comprise Bradley Crossing and the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Residences at Bradley Crossing. This dynamic, multi-use space greatly increases the neighborhood connections within our well-integrated and multi-generational residential community. Honor a loved one or pay tribute to family and friends with a commemorative brick. Thank you for your support to make it possible. Purchase Here!

SAVE THE DATE! MAY 7, 2019:

Join us for the Hirsh Larkey Mental Health Conference: A Spotlight on Opioid Addiction at Alverno College in Milwaukee, WI. The three hour morning session, “The Milwaukee Opioid Crisis: Taking A Deeper Look At Impact And Interventions” is open to the public. The session includes presentations by Milwaukee Community Opioid Prevention Effort (COPE) on current trends and data related to fatal and non-fatal opioid related overdose in Milwaukee County, the “pathway” to overdose, and the need for interventions at primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of prevention and Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division (BHD) will provide an overview of current programs being implemented in the county to the address the crisis. A panel discussion features a diverse range of perspectives from treatment professionals, individuals and family members who have been personally affected by opioid addiction and deaths due to overdose. The three hour afternoon session, “Biological and Contextual Etiology of Opioid Addiction: Impact and Intervention”, is limited to licensed professionals. Facilitated by Edward “Ned” Rubin, Psy.D., Psychologist and Addiction Specialist, the primary goal of the afternoon workshop is for licensed clinicians without substance abuse counselor certification to come away with improved knowledge of the overall clinical etiology of addiction, with emphasis on opioid addiction, and best practices to intervention, within the scope of their licensure. Participants will learn treatment approaches and alternatives, and gain an understanding of the role of trauma in the development of addictive disorders. Registration limited to 25 individuals. Register Here!

Free Dental Services for Holocaust Survivors:

The Alpha Omega-Henry Schein Cares Holocaust Survivors Oral Health Program is accepting applications for free dental work to Holocaust survivors in the greater Milwaukee area. Since 2015, the program has provided hundreds of Holocaust survivors across the United States with free oral care. Applicants must be recognized by Claims Conference as being a Holocaust survivor and meet certain financial and eligibility requirements. Priority is given to eligible persons based on the need to eliminate painful oral conditions, restoration of function and lack of dental insurance coverage. For more information, contact Jewish Family Services’ Holocaust Services Department at 414-390-5800.
