What is an advocate? -- An advocate is someone who helps others speak up for themselves, or listens carefully to what another person says, and speaks up for that person's needs and wants.
DSC is a leader in advocacy. For many years the State of Illinois has continued to decrease funding to people with disabilities and over the past few years, these cuts have become drastic, affecting the lives of thousands in our state.
DSC's Board of Directors and Management Team firmly believe that it is our responsibility to advocate on behalf of children and adults with developmental disabilities in our state and together we work to lead the way in these efforts.
As specific advocacy needs arise, we will post information on our home page and provide email blasts to our supporters. Are you a Facebook user? If so, "Like" our page, "DSC-Developmental Services Center" and you will receive the most updated information.
If you have questions or would like to participate in our efforts, please contact Janice McAteer, Director of Development, at email@example.com.
