Milwaukee Chamber Theatre

Community Partnership: Divine Intervention

Thursday, November 12, 2015

During LOVE STORIES, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre is partnering with Divine Intervention Ministry to the Homeless, an intra-faith ministry of more than 46 communities hosted by the Outreach and Justice Ministry of Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church of Milwaukee. This inspiring organization was brought to our attention by actors Tami Workentin and James Pickering who are ardent supporters of Divine Intervention and Tippecanoe Church.

Divine Intervention's primary mission is the Overnight Prayer Vigil/Warming Room operated December through March each year providing 20+ nightly homeless guests a safe warm place to overnight. Their homeless ministries have expanded to Larry Under the Bridge, which delivers food, supplies and encouragement to local homeless campsites every Sunday and Monday evening.  The ministry is non-evangelistic and focuses on providing basic needs to the homeless as a way to help connect them back into society.

During the run of LOVE STORIES, we will be collecting items for the homeless including warm clothing, non-perishable food items and dry goods, as well as $5 and $10 gift cards to Target and McDonalds.  To learn more about Divine Intervention, including information about donating or volunteering visit: http://www.tippechurch.org/divine-intervention.html
