Adult Advocacy

The needs of adults with disabilities vary greatly depending on whether the individual is receiving government services; whether they have support from family caregivers; and most importantly – depending on the goals and abilities of each person.

The Arc’s adult advocates support individuals 30 and up with vocational, residential, recreational, legal and medical concerns. Our assistance can be as simple as helping an adult to obtain a bus pass, or as life-saving as providing bedside advocacy for an adult during a medical emergency.

Armed with information you can trust, our experienced adult advocates will support the both the adult and any engaged family members as they develop the skills and knowledge for success.

 

How to get help.

To begin the advocacy process, use the link below to request help online or call (303) 232-1338 to leave a message for your advocate.  Requests are typically addressed within three (3) business days.

During the initial conversation, our advocate will listen and ask questions to get a full picture of your current needs. From there, the advocate will work with you to create a mutually-agreeable plan for support.

Once your immediate concerns have been addressed, the advocacy ends. Should you need further assistance in the future, simply contact your advocate again.
