IndependenceFirst has operations in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee counties, but a few of our programs are coordinated statewide through our Milwaukee office. Our Mobility Stores are located in Wauwatosa and Madison.  Please contact the appropriate office for the county in which you live, but all inquiries may also be directed to the main office in Milwaukee. We’ll get you the answers you need!
