Valerie's Story

The stars were aligned when we connected with Bill Zimmer at Disability Network Northern Michigan. I cannot say enough praise for this organization and all they do. When my son was diagnosed with a disabling mental affliction, it practically consumed our life. 

We met Bill while attending a Department of Health and Human Services Medicaid orientation. What a lifesaver! After working with Bill, my son has been awarded disability. As Bill says, "This is the safety net he needs until he can hopefully get well enough to go back to school and/or find employment to become self-sufficient."

Bill has been there 100% for my son and I. He has the experience and knowledge to help us navigate a confusing network for obtaining disability. I cannot imagine finding our way through the network in such a timely manner without his help. Bill is genuine, has compassion, empathy and is understanding. Never did a call or email go unanswered. He was always available to help with an easy-going, personable attitude...like a good friend.

I recommended Disability Network Northern Michigan because I know the struggle first-hand of how you feel helpless and lost. Disability Network is the hope and saving grace that helps keep lives from spiraling into despair. My son and I are forever grateful.
