Eldercare Transportation Service

A system of small buses called “Elder Care” that transported the elderly to and from basic services was formed under Friedens Church. Friedens United Church of Christ began as an Evangelical and Reformed Church on Juneau Avenue near downtown Milwaukee. According to the archives at the UW-Milwaukee Library, the original Friedens Church dates back to 1869. It was originally a congregation of German Americans. The church continued in its original form for many years.
