Be active. Be connected. Be inspired.
Dear Friend,

It has been an active spring season here at Life Navigators. This month, the individuals that we serve enjoyed attending an inspiring Parsons Dance performance hosted by the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center.  They were also able to watch an exciting game of hockey thanks to the generosity of the Milwaukee Admirals Hockey Club. Coming up i
n May, we are looking forward to a Game Night with our friends at Saints Constantine & Helen.  

A huge thank you to these community partners for making such a difference in the lives of the individuals we serve.  These events provide fantastic opportunities for individuals with disabilities to develop stronger networks of support in the community.

We are excited to see how we continue to grow and expand throughout the year.  A huge thank you to our many wonderful community partners, volunteers and donors who make our work possible.
