Building healthy, thriving communities offers a way forward
It requires a holistic approach. After all, escaping poverty depends on many factors – employment, safe housing, nutrition, health, child care. Our decades of experience across health and human services helps us break down silos between programs to achieve better outcomes.
Person-centered case management
By taking into consideration each individual’s entire situation — including their needs, motivations and barriers — we’re able to help them create a pathway to their goals. We then connect them with the services and programs they need to succeed and become self-sufficient.
Greater coordination of services
When public, private, community and faith-based programs coordinate to serve people better, it increases buy-in from individuals. We help at every step, rethinking outdated rules and even realigning program missions.
Flexible funding of programs
We’ll help you consider new blended and braided funding models. These models can encompass partnerships with other programs and sectors, giving you more flexibility to achieve your goals.

Forward-thinking employment program in Milwaukee moves people towards resilience
Milwaukee, Wisconsin is the fifth largest city in the Midwest. It is also a city in transition, where workers are re-assessing their priorities and job interests following the pandemic. The Milwaukee FoodShare Employment and Training Program (FSET), operated by Maximus, plays a critical role in helping community members reach their goals. By providing FSET participants with the support, training, and job skills they need to pursue a career that’s right for them – including less traditional career paths like commercial truck driving – we move people towards resilience, stability, and good paying jobs that facilitate economic mobility.Find out how we’re making a difference in Milwaukee
