Having a place to live is a basic need for everyone. Yet, for some people it remains out of reach. Public housing serves approximately 2.2 million people across the U.S., but the need is much greater; more than half a million people are on waiting lists.
According to the ReThink Survey: Perceptions of Public Housing 2013, the overwhelming majority of Americans believe U.S. citizens deserve a safe and decent place to live. Yet most Americans surveyed do not support public housing in their own neighborhoods and would not want to live near a public housing unit.
Watch and share the inspirational stories from public housing and rethink its impact on individuals, families, and your own community.

With finals approaching, UWM students found stress relief by smashing a car... for charity, of course. PS. Hang in there, guys!
The car smash is part of a weeklong celebration hosted by Sigma Chi for students and faculty to give back the community in a fun, exciting way. All proceeds go to UWM Scholarship Fund and Huntsman Cancer Foundation (50/50 split).
Innovation Campus in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin is a place where business and industry meets academic research to launch intellectual property for the new century.
As a "third generation" research park, Innovation Campus will not only offer technology transfer and business incubation services, but incorporate the academic and research enterprise of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee directly into the development of a private sector park. This powerful combination of industry, academia and nonprofit research organizations working in true partnership at the same location will both attract companies to the region and leverage the intellectual property from the academic research to spinout new companies.
Thousands of un/underinsured people in Milwaukee are touched by the UWM College of Nursing (CON) community nursing centers every year. The centers are located in two of Milwaukee's poorest zip codes, where they've made their homes for more than two decades.
Laughter and tears coincide in this video. Feelings of hopelessness are replaced with mindsets of self-confidence and self-care. The Lundeen Model for Nurse-Managed Primary Health Care, created by CON Dean Sally Lundeen, is working, making UWM an international leader in providing health care to the urban poor.
