We are stronger together!
Advocacy is an essential part of our culture at The Arc Westchester. It is important not only to the people who receive services from us, but also their parents, support staff and the community at large.
We are all concerned about getting the best services that are properly funded, supported by staff who are respected and earn a living wage. Parents want to be sure that their family members have a vibrant future and are treated fairly and compassionately.
None of this happens without a tremendous advocacy effort from all of us. We are all advocates.
We provide many opportunities for everyone to learn more about the importance of speaking up for themselves and others. Individuals and staff are invited to take advantage of these interactive meetings and learn the essential skills of advocacy.
