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

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's summer Community Serve opportunities have been created to allow individuals, families and/or small groups to serve our community throughout the months of July and August. We have created 4 different opportunities to serve our police and fire departments, our schools, Matthews Senior Living of Hartland and Hope Center's community gardens. 

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 our Community Connections ministries through cafe proceeds during the event. 
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.  
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. 
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.
Oakwood Church is proud to partner with the Blood Center of Wisconsin to hold blood drives throughout the year. Fewer than 5% of people who are eligible to donate actually do. Imagine the lives that could be touched by your gift. It's a quick, simple and amazing way to give back to the community. 

Over the past several years Oakwood's Food Pantry Garden has provided thousands of pounds of fresh produce to area food pantries. This onsite garden is prepared, planted, weeded and cultivated by many loving hands at Oakwood Church.
