Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Human Services, Senior Centers, Seniors

Mission: To promote, protect and defend the welfare and interests of, and justice for, people with mental, physical and/or emotional disabilities who are impaired in competence and either diminished in status or seriously physically and socially isolated.

Programs: Citizen advocacy initiates voluntary one-to-one relationships between a person with a disability and someone else from their community who has corresponding qualities and resources. This relationship is initiated by a citizen advocacy coordinator, and advocates are generally asked to build a personal relationship with their partner, and also to take action on their partner's behalf. These "matches" are a means to promote, protect and defend the welfare and interests of, and justice for, people with mental, physical and/or emotional disabilities who are impaired in competence and either diminished in status or seriously physically and socially isolated.
