Individual Advocacy is the work our advocates do to provide direct assistance to adults and to families of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities within our chapter’s service area. The goal of individual advocacy is to promote and protect the rights of individuals, enabling them to lead lives of quality and dignity within their communities. Toward that end, trained Arc advocates can connect individuals and families to community resources, build on the individual’s self-advocacy skills, help with the resolution of a difficult situation, or assist with a wide array of individual needs.
We encourage you to explore our website further to learn more about all that The Arc of Jefferson, Clear Creek and Gilpin Counties has to offer adults, children and families. To start the process of consulting with an Arc advocate, call 303-323-1338.
