Creating a World that Works for Everyone

The Advocacy Center empowers individuals with disabilities and their families to advocate for themselves and realize their personal goals.  Together we build strong, inclusive communities by increasing the ability of community members to support and value all individuals.

Through information-sharing, individual advocacy support, independent service coordination and educational workshops, we advance people's knowledge of resources and help them build life-long advocacy skills. Our leadership development programs help individuals, parents, and families to create positive change in the community by influencing public policy, supporting others with their advocacy issues, and promoting community inclusion and acceptance of individuals with disabilities. Our professional development workshops support organizations and schools in their work. Together, we are creating a world that works for everyone.
