So, the process is as, or possibly more important than the material outcome. ]]> One of Our Own - Express Yourself Milwaukee, Inc responds to violence in our city http://expressmilwaukee.com/article-50-one-of-our-own-express-yourself-milwaukee-inc-responds-to-violence-in-our-city.html In the world we desire, childhood is a carefree and innocent time of life.

No hunger, no fighting, no need other than the task at hand. Her breathing slows, her eyes, hands, mouth and spirit all connected in the present. I have seen this same shift in the kids I work with at the detention center, and in adults and kids in psychiatric facilities, excused for a brief time from their turmoil. The energy changes, the molecules in the room seem to shift...healing is present. ]]> Who does EYM, Inc serve..? - Check out the figures! http://expressmilwaukee.com/article-287-who-does-eym-inc-serve-check-out-the-figures_.html DEMOGRAPHICS * 700 young people, ages 7–21, served annually * 70% male/30% female * 95% low-income * 85% African-American, 10% Caucasian, 5% Latino/Asian/Native American * 100% of the youth served are involved in special education programming * 33% of the youth are in the foster care system ]]> Contact Us! - Contacting EYM, Inc. http://expressmilwaukee.com/article-354-contact-us_-contacting-eym-inc.html
