“The St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care provides comprehensive services to support the Milwaukee community and care for our most vulnerable,” Walker said in a statement announcing the budget item. “This capital budget investment helps the Bucyrus Campus continue to grow and develop so St. Ann’s is able to meet the needs of as many people as possible.”

Once work at the Bucyrus Campus is completed, it will be able to accommodate a total of 120 clients.
