Delta Center Offers Free Advocacy Services for Disabled Adults

Are you a disabled adult or senior citizen who is facing challenges and are unsure where to turn? 

You’re not alone. Delta Center provides advocacy help to people with disabilities. We’re a non-profit organization that helps disabled adults learn to advocate for themselves.

Best of all? Our advocacy services are FREE

What is self-advocacy? Self-advocacy is the ability to speak up and ask for things that are important to you.

We will teach you how to advocate for your own needs and support you every step of the way

Our team of advocates will work with you one-on-one to make sure your voice is heard.

Whether it’s a question about how to get services in your community or an issue with a government agency, our advocates are ready to listen and offer support every step of the way.

We will help you brainstorm solutions and make sure you have all the information and resources you need.

Many people we support are new to being disabled and are unsure of how to advocate for themselves.

Delta Center helps disabled individuals advocate for greater access to disability services and accommodations.

Advocacy for the elderly and people with disabilities often focuses on understanding disability benefits such as Medicaid and Social Security and limited physical access to businesses or places in the community. It can even be systems advocacy for greater access to disability services and accommodations.

“Before visiting Delta Center, I was convinced my photography career was over, as was my independence. Delta Center made me realize how many options I had and how many people were willing to fight to keep me working, living, and thriving.”

We provide free coaching, training, and skills development to improve your ability to promote your own needs.

For example, we can help identify programs you might qualify for and guide you through the application processes. We teach people how articulate and discuss their particular situation that needs to be addressed.

Here are a few ways our advocates can help:

  • being thorough in a brief amount of time.
  • discussing the current or potential impact of the need not being met and identifying the correct person/group to address their concern.
  • we can coach you in navigating the bureaucratic maze that is often associated with acquiring the assistance you need and deserve.
  • we also work at the community and state levels to advocate for services benefiting those with disabilities.

“I wouldn’t be able to work anymore if it wasn’t for my own ability to advocate for myself.”
