HACM has a newly developed 60-unit veterans preference apartment building in the Westlawn Gardens neighborhood on Milwaukee's northwest side. Victory Manor has many design features to meet the specific needs and opportunities veterans face. The Center for Veterans Issues (CVI) provides case management services to veterans living at Victory Manor. The presence of CVI also serves as an outpost for veterans throughout Westlawn Gardens and the surrounding neighborhood. All veterans are invited to utilize CVI’s resources to access a wide array of services.

Located at the historic Veterans Affairs grounds in Milwaukee, the Surgeon’s Quarters Single Room Occupancy (SRO) Program is a joint project of Hope House of Milwaukee, Inc., the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and Friends of Housing. The project consists of a 13-bedroom, Section 8 SRO program that provides permanent housing to adult men and women in a communal setting. Along with an individual room, each resident is provided with shared kitchen, living, and bathroom areas. In addition, a case manager works closely with the residents to assess, refer, link and engage each in the necessary supportive services to help maintain stable housing, such as transportation assistance, mental health and substance abuse counseling, educational opportunities, healthcare, and emergency food distribution.
The population of Surgeon’s Quarters SRO consists of adult men and women who are homeless, possessing the attitude and stability conducive too communal living while receiving case management services. All individuals enter the program from extremely low-income backgrounds with inadequate resources to secure housing, and many are veterans.
