Jordan here. It's been a while since I posted on the Unified Milwaukee blog. We've had some wonderful organizations come through the studios, as a part of the MAKE A DIFFERENCE campaign. This morning I had the opportunity to interview two ladies from the META house.

Lucy Benka, a volunteer with META and Executive Director Francine Feinburg stopped by to tell us more about META's unique approach to helping women in Milwaukee over come substance abuse.
I was particularly impressed with the ground breaking work this group has done. They are one of the first organizations in the nation to focus their efforts with women AND their children. Their holistic and well rounded approach focuses on more than just the addiction, but on lifestyle, and physical and mental health too.
Take a listen to the interview... HERE!
