First Person Care Consultants is a nonprofit organization and certified IRIS Consultant Agency (ICA). We provide experienced IRIS consultants to support Wisconsin participants as they self-direct their long-term care services. Before founding First Person Care Consultants, our leadership developed programming for the Centers for Independence, our parent organization that has been serving communities for more than 80 years.
