Independence First, Inc.
October 7, 2010

Independence First is an organization dedicated to helping others help themselves and its robust, vibrant volunteer program expands its reach even further into Milwaukee and surrounding communities. As a Consumer Volunteer, I have directly witnessed the organization's impact: first, by aligning clients with my services and second, by giving additional supports as needed. (For example, I work with a client in need of sight aides. An Independence First representative met with the client to arrange for the tool to be provided.) This is true customer service and compassionate business practice combined.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Independence First matches persons needing consumer support but also offers its facility for community needs. I specifically refer to its housing twice monthly Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance of Milwaukee support group meetings.
