Help us gather materials for, and assemble, Courage Kits.
In one-gallon zip-lock bags, we assemble Courage Kits to hand out to in-need homeless LGBTQ+ youth around Milwaukee. We accept donations of completed kits or any of the items that can be used to make them.
These kits include travel size:
Pair of socks
Gum / breath mints
Trail mix / granola bars
Feminine hygiene products
Hats and handwarmers
Collection drives can be organized independently or with our help and brought to our offices or the house by appointment.
Courage MKE believes that everyone should have access to post high school education whether it’s a trade school, a certificate program, or four-year university. The Jackie Roberts Memorial Scholarship is awarded to high school juniors and seniors who are members of their school’s Gay Straight Alliance (or equivalent) and is to be applied toward their post high school education. The scholarship is paid directly to the University, College, or Trade school into which the recipient has been accepted.
