Individual Advocacy

women communicating using sign language, individual advocacy imageIndependent Living Advocates work one-on-one with those who are interested in leading more independent lives. The work of an IL Advocate can take many different forms depending on the goals of the individual. The IL Advocate walks alongside the individual as he or she works towards their goals which may be going to work or school, obtaining benefits, or moving out of an institution into a more independent setting. Throughout their work together, the IL Advocate teaches the individual self-advocacy and provides ongoing support and guidance.
