Individual Advocacy

As people with developmental disabilities live more independently, they sometimes encounter challenges living, working and socializing in the community.  An Individual Advocate at The Arc of Spokane can help overcome these challenges, offering one-on-one help so that minor matters do not become a crisis.  Our Individual Advocate can

  • Help locate services in the community
  • Act as a witness when dealing with officials and practitioners
  • Help stabilize a stressful situation through listening and counseling
  • Explain a person's needs or views to others
  • Explain complex information in terms that are easy to understand
  • Help write letters or fill-out legal forms

To talk to an Individual Advocate, contact Helen Black at (509) 328-6326 or hblack@arc-spokane.org 

The Arc's Individual Advocacy program is made possible by a generous grant from Spokane County United Way.
