Parachute House - Peer Run Respite
With the support of Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division, the Parachute House, Peer-Run Respite was opened in 2019. This new initiative provides community-based support in a home-like environment during times of low-level stress.
Milwaukee County Supportive Housing was created to assist individuals who have mental illness in obtaining safe and affordable housing. In 2006, the Milwaukee Journal highlighted deplorable conditions individuals who had mental illness had been residing in. Our Space played a significant role in the development and opening of the first Supportive Housing facility in 2008.
