About Alliance of Disability Advocates

Location:

3725 National Drve, RALEIGH, NC 27605, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to serve all North Carolinians with significant disabilities to ensure that they live independently in a barrier-free community of their choice through consumer-controlled, self-directed services.

Description

We are a Center for independent living providing programs and services that promote and support independent living for people with disabilities. We provide individual and systems advocacy, information and referral, independent living skills training, peer mentoring and support and assistance with community inclusion. Our services are offered at no charge to consumers. We serve Raleigh, Durham and surrounding areas.

Our Values

We do not compromise on these non-negotiable principles that guide our decision-making:

Service

We don’t reach goals for individuals; we teach the skills that allow them to do for themselves.

Inclusion

We advocate for individuals with disabilities to be included in integrated environments in the classroom, employment, housing, leadership roles, and in discussions that impact their lives and the disability community.

Respect

Individuals with disabilities should have the right to control their own lives and make decisions about what’s best for them. We believe every individual can be independent.

Dignity

We advocate for equal rights and access, not special treatment.

Empathy

"Disability" is not a negative word. It means we are more adaptable. We are proud of who we are, and the barriers we have overcome have only made us stronger.
