In 2014, Monica Meagher and Susan Federman began an exploratory process for establishing a regional IVC in Milwaukee. With support from the National IVC organization and the Wisconsin Province of Jesuits, they completed a feasibility study and were given the go-ahead to begin laying the foundations for IVC Milwaukee. Almost immediately a group of talented and interested individuals stepped up to form a Leadership Team. With guidance from the National Office, this team began the process of fundraising, secured an excellent group of service sites, and is currently forming and placing our first group volunteers. IVC Milwaukee is now launched as of Fall of 2016.
There are many exciting challenges ahead as we bring IVC Milwaukee to life, but the rewards and blessings are even greater!
