December 2022 Talking Points: Clients celebrate the next chapter of their lives

By Candace Romano, Associate Director of Marketing

Lukas became part of the Milwaukee Center for Independence family when he was about a year old after spending all his young life in a hospital connected to life-saving equipment. More than 1,500 days later, Lukas graduated from our medical day care program, ready to take on the next chapter in his life’s journey, healthy and happy!

Cindy battled depression and a lack of self-confidence since she was a teenager, but always had a dream to be a special education teacher. She just needed help to take that big step toward her goal. Working with her psychotherapist from MCFI’s Behavioral Health Services program, Cindy received the confidence and support she needed to finish her associate degree and is now enrolled in college this semester to work toward completing the next chapter of her journey and become a teacher!

Please watch this video to see how Lukas and Cindy have been helped through MCFI!
