About Advocates

The Autism Alliance became a program of Advocates in 2009. Advocates champions people who face developmental, mental health, or other life challenges. We partner with individuals and families to shape creative solutions to even the greatest obstacles.

First, we listen. Then, together, we do what it takes to help people thrive.

Caring Partners

Advocates' approach honors individuals’ and families’ needs, wants, and goals. First, we listen. Then we work with the people we serve as full partners—that’s part of our organizational promise. As a result, individuals and families facing serious challenges are empowered to achieve their goals and pursue their dreams.

Creative Solutions

We bring to our work determination and open minds. Our staff and leaders give their all to shaping creative solutions to even the most challenging obstacles. We champion the individuals and families we serve, and value the opportunity to work with them to find the right solution, not matter what it takes.
