Individual advocacy

A Strong Voice for Our constituents

For an individual with a developmental disability, living independently can be uniquely challenging. Without help, even a minor matter can quickly become a massive crisis, resulting in lack of housing, exploitation and even abuse!

The Arc of Spokane’s Individual Advocacy program helps vulnerable adults overcome the unique challenge they face in our community. Our advocates provide one-on-one assistance when problems arise, which empowers individuals with an I/DD to further receive greater independence.

We can help with:

>> Finding appropriate services in the local community

>> Act as a witness when dealinging with public officials and practitioners

>> Provide counseling and emotional support

>> Document guidance with regard to applications, forms, legal paper work and more

Please complete the form below if you need help with a situation or are in a crisis.
