The Alano Foundation operates and administers a number of programs to assist Milwaukee-area individuals in their personal journey to recovery from AODA addictions.
The Jenich Youth Fund was founded in 2010 and named after our loving member George Jenich provides assistance to youth (18-25) in AODA recovery to further their journeys towards self-sufficiency and independence.
Resources provided by the Jenich Youth Fund have previously included:
To support at-risk youth, the Milwaukee Alano Foundation and Jenich Youth Fund provides referral and financial support to REBOUND Athletics. This off-site program, led by volunteers active in recovery, provides a productive, positive, and drug-free environment through basketball. Check out this wonderful article about the REBOUND program here.
To learn more about the Jenich Youth Fund or Apply for Assistance contact the Alano Club at 414-278-9102 and ask to speak to our Cafe Manager (Jackie) or our Executive Director (Peter).
The Women’s Initiative is a progressive, educational network of resources and mentoring for women in recovery. Conducted by women who share similar life experiences, the program supports women through ongoing events that focus on topics such as health, relationships, career assistance and financial planning.
Childcare is available at the Alano Club, in conjunction with the Women’s Initiative, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. every Wednesday during the "Chix at Six" meeting. This allows women to attend meetings while being provided a safe environment for their children.
