Veterans Housing

101 supportive housing units are available at the Milwaukee Soldiers Home for Veterans and their families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. A range of housing types are available to suit personal preferences and needs.

All residents of the Milwaukee Soldiers Home have access to on-site Veteran supportive services; receive complimentary internet, basic cable, and utilities (water, sewer, electric); be able to enjoy a variety of community and amenity spaces; and access the 90-acre landscaped grounds and trails including the Hank Aaron State Trail.

One- and Two-Bedroom Apartments

The most iconic building on the Soldiers Home grounds – “Old Main,” Building 2 – was a domiciliary for patient living and care. Now, it has been returned to its original purpose – the service of Veterans, and offers one- and two-bedroom apartment units. The building also houses community amenities including flexible lounge areas for gathering, a club room with billiards, a business center, a workforce skills training center, two fitness areas, and offices for on-site building management, security, and care coordination services.

All one- and two-bedroom apartments are imbued with rehabilitated historic features, and include kitchens with varying appliance packages.

Single-Room Occupancy

The Administration Building, Building 1, offers single room occupancy units. Adjacent areas, including the historic post office, have been renovated into a shared kitchen, dining, community, and living rooms.

Single room occupancy, commonly abbreviated as SRO, is a form of housing consisting of one private bedroom and closet space, with shared amenities available for all to use.

Three-Bedroom Duplexes

Three homes on the grounds that formerly housed Soldiers Home staff and their families have been restored for use as private duplexes. Each duplex offers two-story, three-bedroom units on each side.

A Single-Family Home

The former Catholic Chaplain’s Quarters has been rehabilitated as a private, single-family home offering four bedrooms.
