Many people prefer to live in the community in their own homes, instead of nursing homes and other institutions. We can help.
Independence First offers help in these three areas:
- Transitioning from a nursing home and other institutions into the community. We identify the barriers and solutions, such as hiring a personal care attendant or adaptive equipment. Contact Julie Alexander 414-226-8378 V/Relay
- Institutional Diversion- We provide assistance to individuals with disabilities who are at risk of entering institutions an wish to remain in the community. Contact Gerald Hay 414-226-8135 V/Relay
- Youth Transition- We help youth with disabilities, who have completed high school or otherwise left school and are entering the adult world. Contact Gerald Hay 414-226-8135 V/Relay
