“In a profession where only 5% of Physical Therapists in the US are black, we are Milwaukee’s first black-owned Physical Therapy Clinic. We are located in the inner city with the goal of providing quality rehabilitative care to the underserved. We have been open for two years. Currently, we employ one full-time physical therapist and are in the process of hiring our first non-owner employee. We still get a lot of people saying they have never heard of us so a grant like this will really help us get the word out to let people know we are here to help!” – Santana Deacon
