|OCHN Advocacy Resources|
Advocacy is the act or process of supporting a cause or proposal: the act or process of advocating for something or someone. In practical terms, advocacy is a form of problem solving. It is finding the best way to improve a situation:
1. Protect the rights of people to receive fair, equal, and human treatment.
2. Improve services, eligibility, and enhance service quality.
3. Ensure adequate funding is made available for valuable services that improve the lives of individuals with disabilities.
