ALLY “A Life Like Yours” Advocacy Center

ALLY Advocacy Center

When a person is diagnosed with a disability, it is often difficult to know where to turn to find information, resources, and support.

Our team at ALLY “A Life Like Yours” Advocacy Center works diligently to meet the unmet needs of the community by providing free information on disability rights, guidance, support, events, and workshops for individuals with disabilities, their families, and the professionals who work with them.

ALLY works to ensure that you know about all of the benefits and entitlements that you or your family member with a disability may be eligible to receive – from early intervention, through navigating Individualized Education Program plans (IEPs), to transitioning from public school and beyond – ALLY provides support at the start of the journey and throughout the lifetime of the person with a disability.
