An Advocate is a community volunteer who has entered into a one to one relationship with a person with developmental disabilities. An advocate has recognized that a person with developmental disabilities has challenges but through a relationship with an advocate, he or she can lead a full, active and productive life.
An Advocate only has to give their time to the Protege they are matched with. When an Advocate spends time with a Protege each person pays their own way. Proteges are active and vibrant individuals who truly want to show their independence and value, they just need a friend to help them.
