Oakwood's Community Partnerships

Posted by on

It is a privilege and our calling to serve those in our community. All Oakwood community partnership events can be found on the events page as they happen. For more information about these opportunities, email .

American Red Cross volunteers and staff work to deliver vital services. Oakwood hosts regular blood drives to provide a vital resource to our community and beyond.
Twice a year, Oakwood hosts Divine Consign - a women's used clothing sale. Divine Consign partners with local charities to improve the lives of women. It also provides funding for Oakwood ministries through cafe proceeds during the event. 
Exploit No More (ENM) exists to empower Milwaukee’s children to rise out of sex trafficking. It's goal is to lend voices to children who have been sold for sex, to mobilize our community to do something about it, and to provide long-term residential aftercare to children freed from the chains of commercial sexual exploitation. Oakwood Church partners with ENM through prayer, advocacy and financial support. To join Oakwood's prayer or advocacy team, contact Debby Rowe.
Family Promise of Western Waukesha County was developed to provide a collaborative effort linking many churches in our community with other support services to assist local homeless children and their families in their own efforts towards self-sufficiency.  Family Promise provides a cost effective way to offer hospitality, providing overnight shelter, meals and support services to these families facing a housing crisis, while transitioning them into permanent housing and sustainable independence. 
HeartLove Place (HLP) is a nonprofit ministry located in the heart of Milwaukee’s Harambee neighborhood. Founded on the principals of Christian values, HLP provides programs and services to meet the needs of the community through its Family Resource Center, Adult ProStart Culinary & Job Readiness Program and Food Services.  It is through these program areas that we help empower, develop spiritual growth and motivate families in order strengthen our community.  
The Milwaukee House of Prayer exists to encourage & equip people to go from monologue to dialogue with God. Prayer is really important to Oakwood and we enjoy supporting this local organization that accomplishes our mission, too.
Touched Twice is a biblically-based medical and community clinic that provides physical, mental and spiritual care to individuals in need. The event is usually the second Saturday in October. 
Oakwood hosts occasional food drives for the Waukesha Food Pantry, providing nutrition to those in need in our area.
