Support the MCFI Foundation this holiday season

Johnny Ramirez is a dining room attendant at Culver's on Milwaukee's south side. At 33, it is his first job.

Johnny wanted a job so he could fix the ceiling fan in his bedroom, but also help with some of the bills at home. About a year ago, Johnny successfully completed the employment and job training program.

Today, he is thriving at his job and him having the job has been life-changing for the family.

This holiday season is a perfect opportunity to help more people like Johnny and their families achieve their goals of independence.
