Our Mission

Citizen Advocacy is a means to promote, protect and defend the welfare and interests of, and justice for, persons who are impaired in competence or diminished in status, or seriously physically or socially isolated, through one-to-one unpaid voluntary commitment made to them by people who have relevant skills and resources.

Advocates choose one or several of many ways to understand, respond to, and represent that person’s interests as if they were the advocate’s own, thus bringing their partner’s gifts and concerns into the circles of ordinary community life. Many of these commitments last a lifetime.

Our Vision

A world in which each life is valued, protected and celebrated for its uniqueness, through a vested relationship.

 

“No I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me…”
– Ben E. King
