Connections Draws on Deep Roots Serving Wisconsin IRIS participants

An IRIS consultant agency by Lutheran Social Services

About Connections IRIS consultant agencyWe built Connections, an IRIS consultant agency by Lutheran Social Services (LSS), from the ground up with a group of determined leaders who have personal and professional experience improving and navigating the long-term care system and who understand it intimately.

Our Connections team of consultants not only have the background and experience to serve IRIS participants in Wisconsin, we chose them because of their passion for this work. They have great listening and communication skills, attention to detail and a strong desire to support people – to help you live the best life possible.
Your Connections IRIS consultant will help you identify your needs and desired outcomes, work side-by-side with you as a participant who directs your own care or with those responsible for helping direct support and services for loved ones.

LSS serves as our inspiration and foundation

Connections, which is based in Milwaukee, also draws upon the vast experience of our parent organization, Lutheran Social Services (LSS), which has served Wisconsin and Upper Michigan residents for 130 years. Both LSS and Connections work to help people improve the quality of their lives and both believe in the infinite worth of each person.

LSS strives to provide life-changing services that meet the most urgent needs of individuals and communities. Each year, LSS offers more than 263 programs at more than 188 sites in 117 communities throughout Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. With the help of more than 1,100 employees, LSS provides services across a person’s lifespan, addressing a variety of conditions.

All LSS-affiliated services, including Connections IRIS consultant agency, are offered to state residents regardless of religious affiliation or background.


“Communication is merely an exchange of information, but connection is an exchange of our humanity.” ~ Sean Stephenson
