ADVOCACYDENVER is a non-profit, civil rights advocacy organization serving children, teens and adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities as well as their families. We provide an active voice to those seeking assistance, guidance, access and support in areas of education, health care and legal services, housing, transportation and financial guidance. Where other organizations focus on creating adaptive opportunities with existing programs or services, we concentrate on listening and providing support based on the individual’s needs, choices or objectives. Our goal is to help secure the specific opportunity the individual or families are seeking. We also work with other organizations and government agencies to affect system or policy change relative to the constituents we serve. The individuals, families and organizations with whom we work with find a greater sense of accomplishment, self-respect and renewed confidence. In turn our communities benefit and thrive.
