Challenge

Help thousands of children with special needs by helping their parents to have a stronger voice. Many families are at a tremendous disadvantage when they don't know their rights - the children become victims of a form of unintentional child abuse by the school systems. This happens to hard working single moms, to families with two working parents who barely have time to see their kids, and when English is a second language. Advocacy For All will help make sure these kids don't get left behind.

Solution

Advocacy For All helps support free hotline and other services, and provides free copies of The Special Needs Parent Handbook to libraries with the help of volunteers to expand access to the book for families unable to afford one. Help children to reach their potential with the best possible education by helping their parents to become stronger advocates.

Long-Term Impact

Advocacy For All will help tens of thousands of children with special needs get the best education by helping make sure their parents know their rights. The long-term goal of Advocacy For All is to offer free advocacy services to all families in need of assistance.
