Person to Person: Citizen Advocacy brings the needs of an individual at risk of social isolation to the attention of a citizen who will respond to those needs through a freely given advocacy relationship. Each relationship is unique. A Citizen Advocate can choose to be a friend, mentor, etc. We believe unequivocally that a person with a disability deserves inclusion in mainstream society. We know that a person with a disability possess many gifts and talents to share, but are not always given the opportunity to do so. We believe that a community volunteer can show and share the world around them, making a huge difference in the life of that individual. We believe that the value of "neighbor helping neighbor" is something worth preserving.
