Individual Advocacy at The Arc
Through our Individual Advocacy program, The Arc's knowledgeable team of experienced advocates work directly with individuals and family members to solve problems, connect them to resources, develop advocacy skills, or assist with a wide array of specific needs. Please note that The Arc is not a legal service and does not give legal advice.
We serve all people with an intellectual or developmental disability (identified or suspected) and their family members, regardless of age, as long as they are currently living in or receiving services in Jefferson, Clear Creek or Gilpin Counties.
Because of the extraordinary demand for this free service, please use the link below to review the details of this program and get a better understanding of what to expect from your advocacy experience.
To effectively address the unique needs of individuals in different life stages, we offer three age-specific areas of advocacy:
Education & Family Advocacy for youth 21 & under (including infants) who are still in school
Transition Advocacy for young adults (18-29) who are no longer in school
Adult Advocacy for any adult 30 or older with I/DD, including seniors
