Compel Them to Come, Inc. was founded in 2004 as a grassroots agency serving families.
Based in Milwaukee, Compel has taken a proactive approach through private and federal funding to help fragile families. Time has taken its toll in this city creating a cultural disaster that requires immediate action.
Milwaukee's black community has experienced a 50% decline in marriage since 1960.
Today in Milwaukee, only 1 in 3 African-American families are headed by a married couple.
Although the black teen pregnancy rate has decreased 19% this decade, it is still 5 times higher than that of white teens and 50% higher than the national average.
82% of African American babies are born to single mothers.
Research shows that both children and adults prosper in married households. They are healthier, achieve higher education levels, avoid crime and risk behaviors, and attain greater economic stability.
Our agency is based on the belief that our families' needs are of the utmost importance. We maintain that truly changing the family culture takes the commitment of people and professionals from all walks of life.
We recognize the influential role of human relationships; Compel steers youth and adults towards beneficial relationships rather than those that can destroy their future and our community.
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver life-changing programs to those seeking happy and healthy lives.
