Advocacy is at the heart of our services.  We advocate accross the lifespan in all areas of life.  The bulk of our advocacy comes in education - ensuring students are receiving the services and supports to be successful.  We have a strong partnership with the Michigan Alliance for Families and the ultimate goal is to empower individuals and families to become self-advocates and ultimately life self-determined lives.  Our advocates are highly trained, compassionate, and understand the barriers affecting individuals with i/dd and their families.
