Community Organizing

SPCA  has a long tradition of community organizing for neighborhood empowerment through block watches and quality of life issues. We are now utilizing social media to organize residents across their immediate neighborhoods around the larger issues that affect Sherman Park.


SPCA currently oversees two programs that provide homeowners with resources to make needed repairs.  We also work with the City of Milwaukee to provide residents with information about other programs available to them city wide.

Targeted Investment Neighborhoods (TINs) 

The goal of the program is to support and encourage homeowners and responsible landlords to improve the safety and appearance of the neighborhood. Homeowners and landlords who use the program can make common household repairs and updates.

Priority Repairs
• Code violation repairs
• Lead paint abatement
• Exterior appearance
• Heating & plumbing upgrades
• Energy conservation
• Weatherization
• Window replacement
• Electrical upgrades
