Exceptional Results

The Ramirez Family Foundation undertook an effort to improve educational opportunities for underserved youth in the City of Milwaukee. Their objective was not only to improve the quality of education for our city’s children, but to make a lasting impact on the community and improve the city’s overall quality of life. The Ramirez Family Foundation wished to provide a legacy project to the City of Milwaukee founded on their four pillars of values: Faith, Family, Athletics, and Academics.

The 192,454 square foot facility serves as not just a year round educational facility, but will also hold liturgical services, offer continuing education classes, host athletic events, provide health care services, and envisions many more programs yet unforeseen. The impact this facility has already had on the surrounding community has been monumental. By providing a positive environment for youth and adults to gather in the name of education, faith, well-being and family, children and adults feel safer in their community and have been instilled with a sense of pride and belonging.
