Individual Protection

People with disabilities have the right to make decisions and to have their preferences respected regardless of their disability.  People with disabilities may need support from others they choose to realize their preferences.

People with disabilities who live in facilities have the right to be free from abuse and neglect. 

We help adults with disabilities who:

  • Want to make their own decisions
  • Are denied services and supports needed to make their own decisions

We help individuals with disabilities who:

  • Reported abuse or neglect that has not been addressed in a timely manner

Promoting Systems Change

We support changes that will make supported decision-making an alternative to guardianship.
