Founded in 1971, the Sherman Park Community Association began as an organization of residents whose purpose was to encourage people of all races, religions and national origins to come together for the purpose of good quality education, beautiful homes and streets, and reserving Sherman Park as one the most attractive, convenient and interesting places to live in Milwaukee.
Many of its early years were spent fighting unfair real estate practices and assisting homeowners with much needed repairs. It was also in the forefront of efforts aimed at the removal of lead paint in homes with a particular focus on the impact on children.
Today, we continue to encourage people to make their home in Sherman Park by marketing its positive aspects of housing and diversity. We also service as a resource for residents around homeownership, home repairs, beautification and identification of those issues which impact life in Sherman Park now and in the future.
