About

This is an opportunity for professional and non professional adult individuals to incorporate volunteer service into their lives while making a difference in protecting the rights of individuals with developmental disabilities. The Human Rights Committee serves as an independent oversight to protect the rights of people with disabilities. The group meets monthly to (1) review behavioral treatment plans for possible rights violations; (2) review incident reports and research proposals; and (3) make recommendations about changes to protect the rights of people with disabilities. We hope for a culturally diverse group of volunteers, reflective of our community, to embrace this essential and rewarding work. The meetings are currently the 4th Monday of each month starting at 3:00 p.m. lasting about 2 hours. The meetings will be held at Valencia Public Library, 202 W. Valencia. Members are asked to participate for a minimum of one year. Here's your chance to become involved in a meaningful opportunity! Training will be provided. Current Division staff nor staff from provider agencies are eligible for this volunteer opportunity.
