Green Bay Packers make donation to MCFI

MCFI was the grateful recipient of a $6,000 grant from the Green Bay Packers Foundation at the foundation’s annual luncheon, held Dec. 4 at the Lambeau Field Atrium in Green Bay.

The grant supports the Steady Path Client Recovery program for our Crisis Resource Center clients. The program combines peer support and visual art connections and is especially helpful for clients who may have trouble talking about their personal challenges.

This gift will be used to purchase educational materials, art supplies and bus passes for those clients who wish to participate in the program for their continued recovery after returning home.

About Us

The Milwaukee Center for Independence opened its doors in 1938, helping WWII immigrants find jobs — and refuge. Today, our impact is just as compelling. We help people in need, from newborns to the elderly, gain greater independence.
