“The Philippine Cultural and Civic Center Foundation embodies Milwaukee County’s vision of becoming the healthiest county in Wisconsin by achieving racial equity,” said Supervisor Vincent. “This organization has been a vital part of our community for more than two decades. The center’s educational and cultural initiatives open the window of opportunity for people of all ages and backgrounds to experience the beauty of Philippine culture. Its free healthcare clinic expands access to vital services desperately needed in Milwaukee County. I thank the Philippine Cultural and Civic Center Foundation for all they do and wish them continued success for years to come.”
