The Courage house

We believe that a child is not able to work on themselves until they are able to be themselves

Our purpose

In 2019, Courage MKE opened Wisconsin’s first home for displaced LGBTQ+ youth. Courage MKE believes that in order for youth to work on themselves, they must be able to be themselves.

The Courage House is a licensed group home on Milwaukee’s south side. Our staff and volunteers are committed to creating an environment in which each resident feels like they are a part of the entire Courage MKE Family. At the Courage House, we assist residents with counseling, healthcare, life skills, family reunification, and provide them the same experiences every child deserves in a family setting


Based on the state average youth stay at group homes in Wisconsin, our residents are staying with us 211% longer.


"I work at The Courage House because these young adults are our future. I want them to be able to grow into their full potential with no regrets."  - Tywanda, Resident Care Worker
