Ebenezer Stone Ministries
Did you know that the city of Milwaukee’s poverty rate is 29%? That is nearly double the national rate of 14.8% and the state of Wisconsin rate of 13.2%. This makes Milwaukee the nation's fifth most impoverished big city! Painfully, Milwaukee’s poverty rate is 42.1% among children 18 and under.
