IRIS Consultant Team Member
Kevin Fech serves as a Connections team manager after working with IRIS individuals as a consultant since 2010. He feels his greatest joy is when a man or woman achieves his or her goal – and he’s been a part of helping the person achieve that success. He feels happy when he can help a young man move out on his own, with proper supports, or if he can assist an older adult woman to realize that she can volunteer at the same food pantry where she receives supplemental necessities. He says it’s wonderful to help a young woman to get connected with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and see her smile as she realizes that her dream of community-based employment has become a reality.
Kevin also has served on the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities since 2009, and on the Disability Resource Center oversight committee for Milwaukee County. A father of three teenagers, his oldest son has a dual diagnosis of Down syndrome and autism, and is also non-verbal. His son is going through the transition process from high school to community-based employment, as well as the transition from the Children's Waiver to the adult system. According to Kevin, he doesn’t advocate for his son’s rights – he advocates with him.
