Milwaukee County Vel R. Phillips Juvenile Justice Center
Vel Phillips was an attorney, judge and secretary of state of Wisconsin who constantly advocated for fair but just treatment of juvenile offenders. Thanks to her, wayward youths in Milwaukee County receive care, therapy and an education provided through an agreement with the Wauwatosa School District. Youths incarcerated for infractions of the law are not merely locked up here, they are offered the opportunity to turn their lives around before they reach the adult justice system.
