Removing barriers, gaining independence
Rosetta shares her story of breaking free from depression, gaining independence and a new outlook on life thanks to Jodi, her Connections IRIS Consultant. Working hand-in-hand, we remove barriers to bring health and well being to inviduals.
Together we envision healthy communities filled with people using their God-given gifts to serve.
With the help of Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, Rosetta, who once thought she would rarely ever leave her apartment again, was able to move forward with her life. Rosetta desperately wanted a mobility chair to help her not only move around her apartment with ease but to also get back out into the community she loved.“The first person I called when I found out I was getting my chair was Jodi,” Rosetta recalls. “She always told me, ‘Everything is going to be OK,’ and now it really was!”

Humbly called to serve, we help improve the health and wellbeing of those most in need. We compassionately provide quality services for: a child in crisis with no one to turn to, a family in turmoil, a loved one struggling with mental health or addiction, an elderly person or a person with a disability needing support to live independently and successfully in the community, or a refugee who is fleeing from war and persecution.
Over the last century we have lived our values and co-created programs, along with our partners, to address our states’ most complex challenges for multiple generations. We have changed and innovated new programs to ensure positive outcomes and impact, shown courage by providing services that others have been unwilling to provide, and led with love and compassion – always believing in the infinite worth of those we serve and helping them realize their potential.
