Advocacy is the core of our organization. We believe that by focusing on advocacy and teaching people with disabilities self-advocacy skills, our vision and mission can be achieved. Visit the Advocacy in Action section.
By raising the community's level of awareness about disabilities, our centers have the unique distinction of being both a resource for individuals and an advocacy organization in the community.
