Words from Savanna and Nancy

The Big Share logo, with the text 10th anniversary below it.

Nancy Heltemes, Disability Rights Wisconsin’s Board President, and her daughter, Savanna, share how DRW’s advocacy work changed their lives when they were struggling with a lack of communication from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. Thanks to the advocate’s efforts in making sure there was a plan in place for work training and support, Savanna is now 25 and working in a job she loves.
