Advocates Inc

Over 20 years ago, a small group of caring families of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities established Advocates as a resource for education and family support. Today, we are dedicated to empowering individuals and their families to lead meaningful and inclusive lives in our communities. We provide the information, support, and resources that you and your family need to self-direct your services and achieve your goals. Championing the needs of the people we support is at the core of our mission, be it through individual, family, or systems advocacy.

Our mission is to empower you and your family to direct your own life and create a vision for the future.  We offer many services to assist you to fully participate in your home, school, and community in a meaningful way.

Advocates truly believes not only that you have the right to live the life of your choice but also the right to have the support that you need to succeed in those choices. We want to ensure that you have the resources you need to reach your goals. That starts with the first phone call. Whether that means navigating your family’s journey through OPWDD eligibility or simply finding the right supports and services, we will be there each step of the way. To start such discussions, please contact our Family Liaison at (315) 469-9931 or email
