The Bread of Healing Empowerment Ministry is a holistic approach to building up the Milwaukee community from the inside out. We provide free health care daily through the Bread of Healing Clinic. Our on-staff Employment Specialist offers job-readiness training Monday-Thursday by appointment. Taken together, they are three very important ways that Cross works to serve the people who live in our community.
Bread of Healing Empowerment Ministry
What began over 10 years ago as a response to hunger in the 53205 zip code has been growing year after year. Now, with the growing poverty in the community resulting from the loss of good-paying jobs, this ministry is even more critical and necessary. Some of the most important aspects of today's program include:
We welcome you to stop in on a Wednesday and discover what a powerful and special place this is, one where you are guaranteed to receive great food, while experiencing laughter, warmth, and love. In the words of one of our regular guests, "Lives are being changed. People are being delivered from addictions, and hope is being restored."

Bread of Healing Clinic
A free medical clinic for the uninsured, the Bread of Healing Clinic (BOHC) provides:
Assisted by hundreds of physicians, nurses and area medical students, BOHC sees over 3600 patients annually. Through Medshares, BOHC also gathers, sorts and distributes pharmaceuticals to patients. Originally founded in 2000 by then-parish nurse Rick Cesar, Dr. Barbara Horner-Ibler and Dr. Tom Jackson as a Cross ministry, BOHC is now governed by an independent board and operates at Cross Lutheran and two other locations.
The BOH Clinic also welcomes volunteers including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, residents and medical students, receptionists, computer programmers, and more. Everyone has something to offer BOH Clinic.

Job Readiness training is being provided by A Stepping Stone, LLC. It involves a 6 week training that includes assessment, assistance with putting together a resume, helping individuals to look at barriers within themselves that may prevent them from securing a job as well as retaining that job. For those that complete the training and are determined to be job ready, we will work to help them secure a job. The goal of this training is to assist motivated people to secure good jobs as well as to help them build confidence and to rebuild lives. Those interested in participating please call the Church and leave your name and phone number. Michael Adams, the Job's specialist, will be in touch with you.
Our employment services program is NOT a staffing service nor do we operate as a recruiter agent. We do NOT pay participants for job searching.
