Hebron Housing Services Celebrates 40 Years

2022 marks the 40th anniversary of Hebron Housing Services! With great pride, we carry on the mission of our founder Bernadine “Bernie” Juno. 

Four decades ago, Bernie quit her job as a dental hygienist at St. Joe’s Dental Clinic to make a difference in the lives of so many people she saw with nowhere to go. She started Hebron House to help get people off the streets and on a path to improving their lives. Since Bernie had never worked in a non-profit, she turned to churches for help and guidance. She worked without pay for eight years until the board insisted she takes a salary. 

Bernie grew Hebron House to be the largest nonprofit provider of services to the men, women, and children struggling with homelessness in Waukesha County. Today her mission continues. 

We hope you will consider joining the Home Team in 2022 to commemorate our anniversary. 

By giving at the $400+ level, $4,000+ level, or $40,000+ level, you will be helping to restore hope and dignity to those struggling with homeless in our community. 

Stay tuned to learn more.
