Milwaukee's Center for Self-Sufficiency gets $1.5M federal grant

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - The federal government is giving $1.5 million to a Milwaukee program which helps prisoners get a fresh start after they’ve served their time.

The Labor Department has announced the grant for Milwaukee’s Center for Self-Sufficiency. The non-profit group provides training and employment services for women and young people who are coming out of prison.

The center also works with school and community groups on programs that help make families stronger.

It helps former inmates deal with the aftermath of substance abuse and other trauma in their past.
