For Secretary Ben Carson, a short trip to Milwaukee included a tour of Journey House, and he was impressed.
“I believe that this is a model that needs to be replicated,” said Ben Carson, United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Journey House helps families move out of poverty. The organization also works with kids who age-out of the foster care system. That mission is why Carson chose the Journey House gym as the spot to make an announcement.
“This new program is a collaborative effort to combat homelessness among at-risk youth by targeting housing assistance to young people who are leaving foster care,” said Carson.
