About

Protection and Advocacy for People with Disabilities, Inc. (P&A) needs volunteers for our Team Advocacy Project. P&A protects the legal, civil, and human rights of people with disabilities. The Team Advocacy Project conducts unannounced inspections of Community Residential Care Facilities (CRCFs), otherwise known as assisted living facilities. Team Advocacy Volunteers can be involved in the program in two ways. Inspection Volunteers will interview residents of CRCFs to ensure they are free from abuse and neglect, as well as financial exploitation. Support Volunteers will assist the Team Advocate with volunteer training and administrative tasks associated with the Team Advocacy Project. P&A provides training for Team volunteers. Inspections can be done any day, anytime, and are scheduled to accommodate the schedules of the volunteers. P&A asks that each Volunteer participate in at least one inspection per year.
